How are root tabs from aquariumfertilizer.com?

I'm about to make an order for some dry ferts from that site and since I was also looking to get some root tabs, I was thinking of trying theirs out. Anybody have any reviews on their tabs? They say it has 20 trace elements.

Just for a little more info, I actually emailed them a while ago, asking what exactly is in their tabs. Here's the response:

Root tabs should be placed near the roots of large plants and near groups of stem plants. About every 6" should work, and they should be effective for about six months. Here is what they contain:



PLANT TAB GUARANTEED ANALYSIS:

Total Nitrogen (N).......................1.00%

Phosphate (P2O5).......................0.17%

Potassium (K2O).........................3.00%

Calcium (Ca)..............................2.00%

Magnesium (Mg)..........................2.50%

Boron (B)..................................0.02%

Iron (Fe) .................................15.00%

Manganese (Mn) .........................0.15%

In addition, these tablets also contain laterites, natural organics, plant and fish extracts to supply 76 trace minerals, needed plant hormones, vitamins, an amino acids.
