Aquario Neo Plants Tabs are planted aquarium root tabs designed to slowly release rich nutrients to aquatic plants. Whether used in conjunction with planted aquarium substrate soil such as aqua soil, Aquario Neo Soil, sand, or even gravel, Aquarium Neo Plants Tabs can be used in rich or inert aquarium substrates. In addition, these root tabs are great in situations where planted aquarium substrate has been exhausted and aquatic plants are starting to show deficiencies. Aquario Neo Plants Tabs will save you the hassle of shutting down your tank and replacing all the substrate just to set it up again. Aquario Neo Plants Tabs are even useful in inert aquarium substrates such as sand and gravel. It is perfect for hobbyists who prefer to introduce fewer nutrients in aquariums with less aquatic plant mass or nutrient requirements.
