Nymphaea Stellata and Rubra

So I just put some bulbs in my tank to grow a little before I move.. and I have to say.. they are growing pretty fast. Considering this is my first time with bulbs.. does anyone have any tips for caring for them? I have 1 of each bulb, Rubra and Stellata. They both have growth, which you can clearly see.

They like fertilisers in the root zone if you want them to live a long time.

Otherwise they'll use up all the energy stored in the bulb and die off eventually.
