do as many as you want lol...
it's probably a good thing your tank is gravel. would be hell if it were sand.
And don't worry, this happens to all of us :P
Personally I think that your tank will do fine without the roots tabs. I prefer to use seachem flourish.
so I guess the lesson for you is... not roots tabs in petco gravel!
oh and I heard seachem tabs are also better.... they don't contain as much nitrates phosphates and potassium...Usually provided by your fish and poop anyway...

Thank you Akashi so much for your help he would have been in there for another couple of days until his regular water change if you had not told me about the nitrate.I have 5 small crypts wendetti from petco in there,the water is still a little cloudy but i just checked nitrates again it is at about 5 or 10 ppm ,i will do another change tomorrow morning and siphon the rest of the tabs.
