I have this old junk tank that i decided to clean up. its only 10 gallons. i threw in some java fern and low light plants and started to fertilize with iron and flourish. I have cheap Shultz Aquatic SOil. Im not sure if that stuff has anything in it other than beign gravel. what can i do to add more iron into the gravel? is there any kind of cheap plant tabs or something like that? i don't think i will be tearing this tank apart and redoing it, so a better substrate is not possible. my mother doesn't want me to spend too much time on this.

If you want to add more iron and enrich the gravel, try Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Root Tabs plus Iron.
