Default need advice on best fertilizer for cucumbers

For tomatoes I use tomato tone, but need something similar for cucumbers. Not sure what the best NPK ratio for them is

In the past, Alaska fish fertilizer (5-1-1) just did the job for me. I had very productive plants. This year I am using Neptune's Harvest fish & seaweed fertilizer (2-3-1).

Oh I meant I use fish fertilizer for drenching the soil. I mix crab shells and tomato-tone into the soil. I think seabird guano should do a very good job if you don't want to use tomato-tone. Espoma has also another product called "plant-tone" which may be used for general fertilizing purposes.
