    Neutro TerraTabs are powerful all in one capsules that are designed to be placed into your substrate so that your plants can begin feeding through their roots immediately. It's worth noting that plants will absorb through their leaves first (and quickest) but if you want to give your plants the best food they can (so they look and grow into stunning specimens), then TerraTabs are for you.

    History of TerraTabs:

    After years of using other branded root tabs, we wanted a capsule that was powerful and small. Research showed most brands used very low quality materials, fooling the consumer that theirs were the best. Sadly, cheap fillers mean poor quality and plants didn't do well with the majority. Poor growth and root tabs that didn't break down, therefore provided zero benefit.

    We decided to change all of this...

    These capsules really pack a punch and here's why:

    • The ingredients of the capsules are especially developed for planted aquariums which need easy access to nutrients.
    • High concentrations of nutrients means plants grow faster and show off their real colours.
    • No cheap fillers mean pure quality - plants need the best so why cut corners?
    • Easy to apply
    • Safe for shrimp
    • Will not effect pH

    How to use:

    Decide how many capsules you need. It's advisable that once open, use all the root tabs - moisture in the air can cause the tabs to stick together. Using clean and dry tweesers, take 1 capsule at a time and place into the roots of the plants, roughly 3cm below the surface. Use 1 capsule per area 15x15cm. In large tanks, consider our bigger tub which supplies 50 capsules.

    Root tabs are not designed as a replacement to a nutrient rich substrate but rather offer as a compliment, so when substrates begin to deplete (or preferably just before), pop the tabs in immediately. For a really turbo charged substrate, you can scatter them around the base of your tank, then top with substrate.

    The capsules dissolve in water so when you start placing them into your tank, be as quick as you can. Also ensure the pot which they are stored in remains dry and free from any moisture.

    Each capsule is designed to last 3-4 months in your aquarium, so after that, simply pop more in to allow the plant to keep growing.

    Ingredients of capsule:

    Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium (Macro Nutrients), Magnesium, Boron, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Zinc (Trace Elements).

    A struggle to use & poisonous to shrimp

    I bought the large pack of these to try and feed the many vallisneria across two tanks. Since they're capsules filled with air they were difficult to push into the soil especially when it's dense with roots. After planting, many of the capsules floated back up to the surface of the soil and spilled its pellets on the sand. There was a complete crash of my healthy population of cherry shrimp since the fertiliser pellets didn't stay underground and they likely got copper poisoning from it. I currently can't say how well they grow the plants as it might be too early to tell but I'm sticking to the solid tablet types that don't float away. I wasted money on getting the big pack.

    They can be tricky sometimes - that's the nature of capsules. Best to use tweezers and be quick with them, otherwise they will simply float to the top. If many of your capsules ended up floating, they just need to be pushed deeper. I recommend 5cm minimum. Once inserted with tweezers, give a wiggle under the gravel/substrate to allow root tab to be held in place.

    Whilst all brands of capsules contain copper, the percentage is minuscule to avoid reactions with shrimp. It's more likely that you ended up disturbing your substrate pushing the tabs in causing an ammonia release. Whilst you haven't had a great experience, just persevere. Root tabs in capsules are far better and more effective than solid one's which don't break down very easily and therefore are not accessible to plants.

    Neutro terra tabs

    Plants were growing ok but very slowly, placed terra tabs in the substrate as per the instructions and wow what a difference, plants are looking a lot healthier, fuller , bushier and more coloured than previously, I can definitely recommend and will refresh them when required, great service as always from aqua essentials.

    Tricky little suckers to grip in the tweezers in those awkward spots, I admit a couple floated up. Bit of a panic.
    Saw an almost immediate affect on plant growth.

    These seem to be doing a great job! I added them to my existing plants & they've sprouted new growth that was lacking before.
