S. Repens in black onyx sand

Has anyone used seachum black onyx sand to grow s. Repens? If so, does your repens require some kind of root tab or is the live substrate and liquid fert. enough?

Mine grows just fine in Black diamond sand. I do use root tabs every few months.

Thank you. I currently only use liquid and as this is the only rooted plant in the tank I was unsure if I needed them. Or would root tabs feed water column feeders such as wisteria, anubias, java ferns etc.

Root tabs will feed anything that goes in the substrate. Anubias/ferns/mosses don't go in the substrate (they generally are attached to wood/rock) so the root tabs will have no affect on them. Feeding just in the water column is sufficient for all aquatic plants.
