I spoke to a local fish place employee about the system, since he had tested
it himself. His results were ok(about the same as yeast method). It seems to
provide just enough for a twenty gallon tank setup according to him. Some of
the tablets also dispense other nutrients, Fe for example. Not too much of a
hit for 25 bucks, keep us up to date on your progress. Good luck.
