I can't get hold of Osmocote Plus Gel Caps right now so I thought I would give the potshots a try since my swords r showing signs of N deficiency. It seems that laterite and Seachem root tabs aren't enough.

As far as I can tell Potshots pretty much the same as Osmocote plus in terms of NPK ratio and the amount of micros they contain.

Anyone use them before? Did they work without leeching out of the substrate into the water? Also, shouod I use them whole or cut them into two?

I've used them before. Break them into smaller chunks then place them into the substrate.

Have used them for a couple year's now.
I place one under each sword/crypt,and replace about every three or four month's.
Is good idea I think to break them up for smaller tank's .
I have never put more than four in 80 gal.

So I should be ok in my 55g with about 10 halves or is that gonna be too much?
