Osmocote root tabs, is this the correct one?

[Ebay Link Removed]

thinking of buying this instead of the pills that people are selling on ebay, if i get this 1 lb for 25 bucks it would last me 20 years... please let me know if this is the correct one though cuz i dont want to buy the wrong one cuz that would just suck, thanks.

Edit- well ebay link was removed, here is the title of the item i just bought "Plant Fertilizer Osmocote Plus Outdoor & Indoor Smart-Release Plant Food 1-Pound"... pretty sure its the right one

Regular Osmocote only has macros. The "plus" contains both macros and micros. Be sure to get the plus.

thanks, i got the plus!

also since i made this thread, are these root tabs safe for shrimps?? i know shrimps are sensitive to iron so just wondering if they are shrimp safe?

Edit again - looks like quite of a bit of people don't have any problems with shrimp and osmocote plus so i'll give it a try, thanks
