Substrate/Root Tabs


I'm going to invest in some root tabs to help my swords, and other root feeders.

Seachems root tabs seem to be the best, but also the most costly.

So my options are:

Jungle tabs from Petco - $6 for 24. Do not contain a whole lot of nutrients.

Jobe's Fern and Palm spikes - $1.04 + $6 shipping for a ton of them. I've read around and heard they work ok.

Aquariumplants.com own tabs - $9.99 for 40. Never used them. Cheaper than Seachem.

How would you rank, or which would you suggest for the best bang for the buck?

Tropica has some roots tabs too, but I haven't used them. They come in a 12 pack and a 36 pack.

Yeah, but with shipping it gets costly just for tabs.

I'm thinking its between the Jobe's and the Aquariumplants.com

Suggestions as to which one?
