Hi guys I am new to this hobby. I heard that tablets and liquid fertz are good for plants. As it is really hard to get the tablets and liquid ferts at my location's pet store so i decided to check online and came up with the following products:

Are this helpful? or any other products?

what are the uses of these balls?

eBay links are not permitted.

Regarding the links that were previously there, however, the sellers do not provide a compositional analysis, so it is difficult to say whether they are suitable for aquarium use or not.

For the picture that you have posted, I am not sure if it is substrate or some form of fertilizer; again, without a compositional analysis, it is hard to say whether it is suitable or not.

Osmocote plus placed in capsules or rolled into red clay and pushed deep into the substrate is cheap and very effective.

Laterite mixed with some good old dirt covered with normal sand is pretty amazing.
Idk if links from other forums are allowed or not but you should definitely check out http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ommercial.html this link. A pretty solid planted tank's substrate experiment.
