Best root tabs

Hey all! I have a number of different plants tanks, some with ADA Aquasoil and some with plain gravel. The gravel ones obviously need some supplmentation, so I was wondering what you would recommend as the best root tablets on the market. I have used the Seachem ones in the past with some success, and also a local clay-based one (but found the clay just ended up fouling the water). I've also heard of something called WonderGro... anyone tried this? Or any others I might try?

I've only used Seachem's Flourish Tabs for several years now. I wouldn't recommend anything else.

you're better off getting them online. the price is so much cheaper even with the shipping.
