Im with PACKman on this. Tabs take longer to dissolve, which doesnt really give accurate information when doing tests. Also after it disolves, you have to wait until 5-10 min for the whole product to speard throughout the tank. Too much time consuming. Liquid mixes and flows together easily..thePACK said:yeah don't really use those .cause you must make sure that the pills dissolves right or else you won't get a right measurement ..get the liquid form easier and always on the dot..
