Bought some of the gel cap Osmocote Plus in Swap & Shop. It sounds like they are a pretty complete fert dosing method, but I just want to be 100% sure that this method doesn't lack anything??

This will be a low-med light tank with minimal CO2 supplement. Because I'm lazy. :tongue:

Don't know what whoever placed the osmocote in gel caps added, but here in U.S. most osmocote is low on micronutrient's .
I use osmocote "pop in's"( found at lawn store), in low tech tank to enhance substrate but still use flourish comprehensive or CSM+B.

I put only a few osmocote prills in a gel cap and fill the rest with substrate. That way I can spread more of them around without over doing it. Some people fill the gel cap full of osmocote and then they have way to many in tiny area IMO.
