Are you using root tabs? Dosing anything?

I just got a few sample root tabs from ripariumsupply along with my plants. I am dosing Flourish Excel (just started this week) and I plan on doing that three times a week. I have no idea how often or if I should be using root tabs and/or liquid ferts.. I thought maybe since I have dwarf hairgrass and heavily planted.

First planted tank and post!

Anyone think this is okay?
I've got my fugeray mounted with the attachable legs- I would like to keep it without a top on. I just installed a aquaclear 50 and there doesn't seem to be any sort of splash especially when the water level is high. The only thing that concerns me is an occasional air bubble floating up. Anyone use their fugeray like this without a top?

I have my fugeray mounted the same way. Every now and then it gets splashed by a bubble or a cory, but it seems to keep the water away from the electronic components. I just wipe the mineral build-up off with a micro-fiber cloth now and then so I dont lose brightness from it.

Tank is coming along wonderfully. Keep updating.
