All I know is if you use those tabs I would bury them very well and make sure not disturb the location you have put them for at least a couple week. I have never used anything but a basic iron tab, no NO3 and no PO4 so I am not the best to advise there.

The Leafzone should be fine dosed according to the label.

well, I guess I'll give it a try...It says you can put them in whole or crushed up. It says 1 tab for every 5 gallons of water every 10 days. That seems a lot to me. I'm going to only use half the amount it says seeing I only have 3 bunches of wisteria. Could you recommend another plant that is easy to care for to add in?

Javan moss, Javan fern, Elodea densa, Hornwort, Anubias and Vallisnerias. I've tried Cryptocoryne becketii. I have 2 of those and have been thriving for almost 5 years. They prefer subdued light so you may have to locate those under shaded areas.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I agreew with Blue, ;) and would add anacharis and most Hygrophyla polysperma species. But I will add that my crypts are very much in direct light, Becketti, Wendtii and Lucens and they love it. I also have an Anubias nana in direct light although it does get a little more algae this way it grows rather quickly. I have had it for about 3 months I think and it has tripled in size, put out 3 rhizome splits and has massive amounts of leaves. I have to work to get it and keep everything as algae free as possible but they do love it. My Crypt Red Wendtii was cut back to almost noting not 6 weeks ago and it is absolutely huge right now. Could probably split it into 20 plants. Crypts also love plant tabs and I use them under all 3 of them.

Must admit I used Sera Florenette which are fertilizer tablets. I would surely go back to using ferts although at the moment, it is not necessary as my plants still thrive without ferts.

By the way, I have this Anubias nana and it didn't grow well in the driftwood so I planted it to the substrate and it grew so well. I always thought that plant would never grow well in substrates as others stated. And then there was the Nymphaea stellata growing at a fast rate even if I still haven't finished with the CO2 system.

Ohhh...Must be my lucky day. This is one of the good tidings I consider during my comeback to the hobby. I have bad tidings with tetras which died last July, thanks to temperature fluctuations.
