Organic fertilizer, yes it's used. Think about all the feces that sink into your substrate. The microorganisms reduce it to inorganic substances which will be used by the plants. A perfect symbiosis, because the plant supplies the microorganisms with oxygen in return. This is why old aquaria usually run perfectly fine with little help from our hands.

new Laguna Once-A-Year Mini Fertilizer Spike Aquatic Plant (6 pack)
There are a number of ways to fertilize your waterlilies and other aquatic plants and a number of products that you can use. The important thing is that you do feed them!Over the years we have done a number of side by side tests of fertilizers. When we first began growing waterlilies, the special aquatic tablets weren't available so we used Jobe's sticks (Beautiful Flowering Houseplants and Tomato formulations). These provided better results than no fertilizer but didn't dissolve very much. Weeks and months later they were still there, soft but there. We were happy to test Pondtabbs when they came available and Pondtabbs far outperformed Jobe's. Many growers, however, report excellent results with various Jobe's formulations.In the old days, well composted manure was mixed with heavy garden soil, the lilies planted and gardeners hoped the nutrients would last for the season. Today we have fertilizers designed especially for aquatics that greatly enhance plants' health and performance. Non-aquatic fertilizers can also be used with the results of some experienced growers below.Yamato Aquariums manufactures and distributes aquatic fertilizers, nutrients and products for the planted home aquarium, including Yamato Green, Yamato Green-N and Yamato Green-K, simply the BEST aquarium freshwater plant fertilizer supplements available in the world!
