yeah, I've used the fluval prefilter sponge and it does wonders. Also considering Fluval's 13W light, if the new crypts I got today don't look happy even with ferts and tabs. It's funny how much Fluval merchandise I've bought for this Aqueon tank... My Evolve is like a fluval cyborg, hehe..

I am still on the fence about making my own versus purchasing root tabs. My tank is only a 4 gallon with a small foot print so the tabs would last while.

I think one tab into four pieces should cover the bottom of my tank. I have a large decoration in the middle and the plants are around the outside of it

on the other hand, Osmocote capsules would be cheaper and last a REALLY long time.
