Root tabs?

Recommended Posts

Hello all.  I've recently decided to get back into the hobby after an extended hiatus.  I'm in the process of setting up a 75 gallon tank for neo shrimp (haven't yet decided on what color).  Substrate will be Black Diamond blasting grit, as I've had some success with it in the past.  I'm wondering if you guys can give me recommendations on what type of root tabs to use.  I don't dose any ferts into the water column or anything like that, so I need something that will give plants an adequate nutrient supply.  I used to use osmocote plus, as they're so cheap.  But I've read conflicting reports on whether they're completely shrimp-safe.

Hi Briscoe,

 

I think a general guideline would be to make sure that whatever you're adding to your tank doesn't contain copper :)
