hi all...it's been a while! i have a quick question...
my plants are doing okay, but not really thriving like i would like them to, so i decided to try some root tabs to see if that will help them a bit. i've been using seachem's flourish excell with good results, but i think that my plants need more.
my question really is how many tabs do i put in, where do i put them, and how often should i replace them? i read the directions on the box, and it says to use 6 tablets in a 10 gallon tank, evenly distributed throughout the gravel. now i know that much of the time the "recommended" amount is way more than what's actually needed, so i wanted to ask all of you about it before adding them to my tanks.
so, any advice? oh, and my plant species are one anubius nana, two hedge cherrys, and numerous java ferns (they're just growing daughter plants all over the place, so i'm always ending up with more).
90 gallon tank
48" 65 X 4 CF lighting
flourite and river rock substrate
