2 unrelated questions - Metricide and root-tabs
1) Metricide - have it sitting in my Amazon shopping cart at $21 + 7 shipping (gallon). Anything change here or still an alternative to Excel?
2) root-tabs or osmocote caps : Is it possible to put to much in the substrate and encourage algae in a low-tech setup, or does it release so slowly it doesn't matter. Setting up a new tank with Eco-complete, was thinking about putting some root tabs or osmocote on the bottom before the substrate goes in. Too much?
PS: Was really looking hard at the capped-dirt option instead of Eco, but being my first tank in year AND being a display in the living room the Eco seems to be a good choice to look nice even if I have to dig around in it.
