I think you are looking for dry fertilizers.

Your basic fertilizers are:

Macros:
Potassium Phosphate
Potassium Nitrate
Potassium Sulfate

Micros:
Plantex (CSM + B).

If you want to purchase locally, Aquaflora Nurseries (a sponsor) will ship to your door. I have also heard that AquariumFerilizers.com is also a good vendor to buy from in the US (yes they ship to Canada - no problem).

Hopefully this is helpful.

Best Regards,

Stuart

I use the Aquaflora Nurseries ones. They have separate fertilizers for each compound (i.e. its not pre-mixed like some of the store bought ones, so you can 'play' with the mix is you are a biologist... i am not).

Yes these are sold as "dry fertz" and can then be diluted in water or added straight to your tank as a "dry dose".

Best regards,
