    So 6 months ago I bought 4 argentine swords (basically amazon). I put them in my tank, and the substrate is just straight pool filter sand.
    One of those plants has grown massive, while the other 3 are still the same size as when I bought them. Should I get some root tabs? I didn't think it'd be necessary because the other plant is doing so good without them

    I'd add root tabs. Swords are heavy root feeders.
