It had no ill effect on my fish nor did I experience any type of algae outbreak because of it. I would expect the same for you.
This is interesting kymmie. What brand of tabs do this? Flourish?
I do not have this issue with the Nutrafin Plant-Gro sticks, nor did I when years ago I used some German cones (forgotten the make, haven't seen them here recently, they came in a green and yellow box and looked like cones). They would still be there, a bit smaller after several months, but still solid.
My sticks have all expired (they last one year) and I've been thinking of trying the tabs to see any difference, but if this is what they do, maybe I should stay with the sticks.
