Soil tabs in aquasoil
Hello everyone,
I switched my 55 hi tech over to AS Amazonia. Well.... I am not seeing the growth I had with the other substrate. The only difference is NOT using the tabs. Any help would be awesome!,

how long have the plants been in the aquasoil for?

High tech set ups need a lot more fertilizer, and might use up whatever ferts were in the soil.

You could use slow release tablets in the substrate, water column ferts or both.

Hello everyone,
I have had the plants in the soil about a month. I have to say I am a little disappointed. I am going to try some osmocote caps and see what happens. I guess it can't hurt. I will let you guys know what happens. I am EI dosing and have been for about two weeks.
