Both are companies that manufacture a wide variety of aquarium related products. So yes, your question can not be answered, unless you specify what you are looking at. Annual sales? Profit margins?

I'm looking for fast growth of the root and lush green leaves. I've heard some said tetra were good but others disagreed and choose seachem instead. So which one is the best for my 7 gallons tank ? Thank's before.

I'm giving 2:1 odds on Seachem for their
superior planted tank related products.
I'm giving 5:1 odds on Tetra for their
superior fish health related products.

Again, I'm not really sure what you're asking. Please be specific on what product made by these companies you are talking about.

In terms of availabilty, tetra is easier to obtain at Jakarta as you can see them for quite some time at ACE or at Makaliwe LFSs.
While seachem has one new distributor and currently expanding the merchandise at slow rate.

I bet you are talking about Tetra florepride and seachem flourish. The two has different content whatsoever. You still need to add more stuff containing macro elements for an average CO2 injected planted tank.
While seachem excel is totally different, an organic carbon source/algaecide marvel.

Since the thread is in "substrate" department, I'd say you may also be reffering to substrate additives Tetra initial sticks vs Seachem root tabs.

You should reach me and try out my product since you are in Indonesia as well. Ever heard of "Wonder-Gro" aquascaping fertilizer?

A link from neighbour's forum:

Check my tanks and ask around if you have not done so.

Sorry for barging in with different product

Seachem...nuff said...

Ok, I'll add my 2 cents here, I have used numerous products from both Companies as well as API and a few others. Overall, Seachem products have stood out to me, especially in the realm of plant substrates, I personally have onyx sand in my main aquarium (waiting for flourite black to be available where I am) and use Seachem ferts and filter media. I am actually converting to their betta food as well b/c of all the foods I've looked at they are the only one that has the most "meaty" foods as primary additives. Anyway back to ferts and substrates. Seachem all the way, I haven't been disapointed yet, and neither have been my plants...

Sheer Madness!!!
