Got some guppies and 2 pairs of Amano Shrimps.

I am yet to get the fertilisers.

I had planted a crypt and it has started growing a couple of leaves.

I bought this starter pack.

AQUATIC REMEDIES The Complete NUTRIENTS For NANO Planted Tank | Beginner's Pack | Aquarium Plant Fertilizer https://www.amazon.in/dp/B016C1FY9C/ref ... szbN0PYD01


What should I use in long term? I am assuming it would be K++?



How about using Seachem Flourish and Flourish Excel?

I've read that it needs to be anchored down or it will float. Do I need to tie it to a plastic mesh and put it under the sand or just putting the moss roots under the sand will work?

How many anchor points do I need to provide it with ?
