FAQ from Seachem
Q: I'm using Flourite as my only substrate, why should I use Flourish Tabs?
A: While Flourite is a rich source of iron and some minerals such as manganese, it is primarily a porous substrate/gravel base for the planted aquarium.Flourish Tabs, while not truly necessary for successful plant growth, does supply a broader and more easily utilized source of minerals than does Flourite alone.
Q: I am using Flourish. Do I need to use Flourish Tabs too?
A: As Flourish and Flourish Tabs are similar in function, we generally suggest using one or the other; however, in some situations a greater benfit can be derived from using both. Some plants take in more from their roots, and some take in more from their leaves, so using Flourish and Flourish Tabs addresses both needs. Also, if you are one to forget dosing, Flourish Tabs are an excellent solution as they are placed in the gravel and provide a time-released source of nutrition.
