I would STRONGLY reccomend you use a substrate fertilizer specially for
aquarium use. And never use any with signifigant nitrates or phosphorus.
Once you put these tabs in the soil you can't really take them out if
the addition of these nutrients (particularly phosphate) triggers an
algae bloom. 
	I am using Sera fertilizer. I have their liquid and have found it to be
VERY good. I haven't tried the tabs but based on the good results with
the liquid I am prepared to give them a guarded reccomendation. The tabs
are called Sera Florenette A the liquid is called Sera Florena.
