  2. DIY root tabs?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Hi everyone! I'm building up a new tank and I want to use sand but with root-feeding plants. I know I can use root tabs for this purpose but it is practically impossible for me to find any locally (I live in Mexico) so I would have to either order them online (if they even get shipped here) or...
