What would be a good root fertilizing tab for a Red Rubin Sword? I believe these are primarily root feeders.

When people refer to Root Tabs is that a generic description of root feeding tablets or a particular brand/type?

Originally I used Seachem (I think) root tabs. They are about a dollar a pop. Jobes sticks cost a small fraction of this, and work well for me. I use the lush ferns and palm flavor (NPK 16-2-6) and even though I sometimes uproot them, they haven't caused any algae probs in my tanks.

Where did you buy these? I have looked around and see other Jobes but not the lush fern.
