Root tabs...dosing?

I got some Complete + from RootMedic and wanted to use it in my 12inx12inx12in Cube tank. I have hair grass, HC and 2 other plants I'm not sure of in ADA Amazina soil.

i've personally done liquid ferts and HATE them, the manufacturers always have you dosing more than needed in the aquarium and more often then not it turns my water green, switching to root tabs bacause they are easy to maintain and you won't have to worry about dosing if you happen to go on vacation, i'm pretty sure you only have to change them like once every month or so, not sure on that aspect.

Best to ask Root Medic the dosing. They ought to include such info when they sell such a product.

How many tabs per square foot of substrate or spacing on the tabs.

Specify your style of aquarium. High light + CO2 will demand more fertilizer than a low tech tank.
