Friends, just wanted to know if the Vals feed from Roots or can they also use liquid fertilizer drops ? I dose my tank with liquid ferts and just wanted to know if they'll be enough for my Vals. I also have these Tablets called Tetra Crypto - Is it better to use them for the vals or not needed ?

Kindly guide me...
Thanks !

Vals will feed just fine through the water column (leaves) . I found, when I had them, that the roots developed more when there was root fertilizing, but the foliage growth was the same for all the plants whether they had root tabs or not.

As a side note, I noticed crypts and swords always did better with root tabs.

What size tank are these vals going in?
