Works alright for the money; little cheaper than Flourish. Tabs suck, just dissolve too quick.

Tabs should take a few months to slowly dissolve if left undisturbed (sometimes not the case). They are vastly superior to water column ferts in some scenarios.

I'd go with flourish comprehensive if you can find it, it has a micromix in it. Leaf zone is just iron and potassium.

I have it. It was what I could get at work. It's ok, but I know there are better products out there.
I am using it up along with DIY root caps ( Osmocote Plus gel caps ).

Flourish Comprehensive would be my choice for an easy liquid. My club is urging me to try dry ferts. I'm new to all this and learning as fast as I can. My first tank is a jungle, so I got off to a successful start
