    Hello there,
    I am using ADA Amazonia as a substrate for a month now and I am wondering when to start using root tabs?
    Do I use root tabs when the substrate runs out of nutrients or can I add roots tabs or is it just overkill?
    And when exactly until Amazonia soil runs out of nutrients.
    I have a HC Cuba carpet, and I am also doing ADA ferts.
    Lastly will excess nutrients in the soil cause algae? Or is it only excess nutrients in the water?

    Thanks! :p
