I would put 2 around each crypt, and then you can space out 1 root tab per 6". I always tend to add 2-3 around the crypts in my 45 gallon tank, and I put 5 near my Amazon sword because it's a big sword with leaves bigger then my entire hand.

No need to wait. Only every three months though and bury them as deep as you can.

For optimal plant growth yes, and to the glass.
