Finally our new Easy Root Tabs are ready! We've taken a different approach with these and used actual soil with clay and minerals to make these. This makes for a much safer product if it was to ever get into the water column. It avoids ammonia spikes if it was to get loose and also doesn't make a huge mess like some others.

The gel caps dissolve in the gravel releasing all the nutrients into the gravel for plants to feed on. 

Instructions: Insert 1 capsule every 4 to 6 inches in a grid like pattern. Replace every 3 months or as needed depending on plant usage. Push to the bottom of your substrate for best results. 

Contains:

  • Mineralized Top Soil
  • Red Clay
  • Magnesium
  • Nitrate
  • Phosphate
  • Potassium
  • Manganese
  • Zinc
  • Molybdenum
  • Iron

Works best with deep/heavy substrate

I bought these for my panted shrimp tank and sadly had to give them away. I pressed a few tabs deep ( all the way to the glass bottom, 2 inches deep on one side and 4 on the other) into my eco complete substrate only to find them an hour later rising back to the surface. I poked around on google and found that this is a pretty common issue with cellulose tabs and followed the advice of poking a pinhole in the tab first to let any air escape but even with the air bubble out they wouldn't stay down for me, I found the cellulose wrappers floating after a few hours. I took them to my MIL and put them in her tank with deep river rock gravel and they stay fine... can't comment on if they work or not because every plant that goes into her tank dies (no other ferts/poor lighting on at completely random times, plant eating fish) I've given her a few aponogeton bulbs and am hoping to see results. 4 stars because while I'm sure the product works great (based on experience with their other ferts) I couldn't get it to work for me... and that's okay too but maybe someone should post a disclaimer that they won't work in some lighter or shallow substrates.

Safer than Osmocote.

Osmocote will cause ammonia spikes if it accidentally comes lose in the water column. Cory has made sure that these root tabs don't do that - and are much safer for your aquarium. If you don't want to spend $1/tab on other root tabs, do yourself a favor and get these. They will last, and will keep your fish safe from any unnecessary spikes in ammonia.

First time using these

They do explode quick and some pieces float and turn white... will see if it works

Typically you'll want to put the capsule all the way under the substrate. Pushing it to the bottom of the aquarium so the deepest roots can feed.

Easy green root tabs

First time using the tabs, but on my 3rd bottle of the liquid, and it's to soon to see the results for the tabs, but I love how easily I can stick them down in the substrate with my aquarium tweezers. The liquid has my plants looking the best they ever had and has given me confidence to try harder plants. Thanks Corey your the man!

Works as intended

This is the second time I've ordered root tabs they work as intended and at a very reasonable price!
