Root Tabs 101
Currently, as my tank is a low light/non CO2 20G, I only dose Excel and Flourish Comprehensive.
Tank Parameters and Flora
48W PC bulbs about 26" off substrate
No CO2, dose Excel and Flourish twice a week with 50% water changes weekly
Flora: Bronze wendtii, amulbia, crypt parva, wisteria, anarchris and picking up some elatine triandra this weekend.
My question is regarding root tabs...would they provide any noticeable benefit to my rooted plants?
Also, I'm in So cal, SCAPE's domain and a couple members sell these suckers for something like 50 cents each. I PM'd them regarding what exactly is in their root tabs (no replies yet) but in general, are homemade root tabs trustworthy or would you recommend going to brand names?
Any input is welcome, thanks!
