Seachem's root tabs are very good and long lasting. They won't break down and cloud the water.

Try to get these root tabs over API's if you can.

I've used both with good results. This is the biggest difference between them. Usually you can get the Seachem tabs on-line for a reasonable price.

API is easy and cheap (petco/smart) but the Seachem tabs are better quality and most people outside of very large cities have to order them online. For the money I like Dupla tabs the best but it's hard to get outside of Germany so if I can't get a great deal on a cartoon I settle for the Seachem product.

As another option, Tropica sells PLANT NUTRITION+ capsules that are very good as well.
