Default Ocean Free Absolute CO2 Tablets


Just got the OF CO@ Tablet and wanted to ask if anyone used it and don't mind giving their view of it. I have used CO2 tablets before, Hobby Sanoplant, once a week (the directed dosage), but unlike OF CO2 Tablet it contains trace elements and other nutrients. I don't have an opinion on Hobby Sanoplant since I use it with excel. I think I only use it because I like the bubbles.

Am thinking of using the tablets on my RCS tank. I usually go with Excel (0.1 below the directed dosage) with a weekly Sanoplant CO2 tablet. But thinking of switching to OF CO2 tablet to see if it will speed the growth of my Dwarf Hairgrass.

I heard some bogus rumors that CO2 tablet start algae if you skip a day. That rumor makes no sense, if your dosing a lot of fertilizer and not providing the an appropriate amount of CO2 and light then you'll have algae. Whats really concerning me is the ingredients of the tablet. Is there anything that is harmful to RCS?
