I'm looking into getting more plants for my tank to lower nitrates but I think I might need some liquid fertilizer also.

Which brands of liquid fertilizer are okay to use in axie tanks?

Also, which plants are easiest to keep or the most hardy?

If you're using plants to lower nitrates, then using liquid fertilizer would be counter-productive (as they tend to be nitrate based).

Your axolotls will provide all the fertilizer you need.

I usually remove their poo so should I leave it in instead? or move it to where the plants are?

I dont find problems with my nitrates, and i use both liquid adn tablet, not to mention the CO2 reacter.

I would most recomend 'Flourish', you'll find it in pet stores across australia. YOu mabey wont find it in small pet shops like the ones you'll see in shopping centres but all good aquaium retailers would have it. THe bottle is basicly green, well the pictures on the bottle, are they are beautiful, green plants. Hope that helps you.
