What root tabs?

I think with heavy root feeders and osmocote plus fert capsules you'd be fine. But if you have other plants that would rather feed from the water column then yes you would need to dose it.

nilocg How many bulbs? Assuming its more than one and with co2 you probably should be dosing water column ferts in addition to root tabs.

sdbrewer The answer is dependent on the demands you're putting on your plants. What type of light are you running?
