Osmocote should be used as single pellets and never packaged in many pellets in a gel cap like I see often sold. You will avoid the issue of a bunch of yellow balls everywhere and also high nitrates that people observe when using too much.
I use gel caps all the time and never saw any yellow balls in my tank. However, I do stick them deep into the substrate, don't have digging fish, nor deep-vacuum. So it just depends... of course using too much of anything is never a good thing.
