Hey guys. I want to make DIY root tabs for my 20 gallon planted aquarium. When I went to get the traditional fert osmocote plus, I only saw a huge bag of it which I would never finish using. I found this miracle gro slow realease pellet form fert the pellets were brownish tan. Here are some pictures of the product and its nutrient analysis:
Liquid Fluid Plastic bottle Golf Household supply

Liquid Green Fluid Yellow Plastic bottle


Can I use this stuff instead of osmocote plus in my DIY root tabs without harming my plants or fish in my 20 gallon planted aquarium?
BTW, I saw some osmocote not osmocote PLUS. Which would be better, the osmocote NOT PLUS or this miracle gro stuff?
THANKS!

Not sure about the miracle grow, but if you live near a Home Depot or Walmart they both sell it here in NC. Currently Home Depot has it on sale for around $7.50 for a 2 pound bottle, then you can get the rebate and send it in and end up getting paid around $1.50 to but it. :icon_surp

Is their good plant growth with just osmocote NOT PLUS? I compared the 2 labels osmocote plusand osmocote, the osmocote has wayish less nutrients compared to osmocote plus.
