    I haven't seen any cons to using osmocote tabs. They work just as well as the Seachem tabs yet they're cheaper. I would insert the tabs 3-4 inches apart surrounding the roots of your vals.

    I'm going for it. You can make your own out of those gel-caps for making pills. They sell them at yuppie stores in the healthcare section or various new age places but you can just dump them out if you've bought vitamins. I'm really neurotic about it so I dump out my magnesium tablets into a crease on a piece of paper and pour it straight down my throat with a glass of water. It's ok once in a while but if you're talking multiple supplements EVERY day then you probably don't want that much vegetable gelatin in your system. It's not good. All we want is the medicine, right? Then I can fill all those empty gel-caps with ozmocote and use them as root tabs in my tanks! Win. Win.
