Osmacote is loaded with phosphorous. I'm using it in my substrate, and I've
had a couple of greenwater outbreaks after the substrate was disturbed when
uprooting plants. I would not reccomend that anyone add Osmacote directly
to the water. It's value is in the substrate where the P is available only
to rooted plants.
