Setup:

55gal
T5HO 2x54w
Substrate designed for a planted tank, the one they sell on aquariumplants.com

I know my lighting is fine and that I don't need to dose CO2 thanks to 850R, she has an almost identical setup only difference is she has a different substrate and her tank looks awesome!

The question I have is will we need to use root tabs with our substrate, the substrate says it has nutrients built in. The website lists a whole bunch that is in the soil. I want to do the tank right but I don't want to over complicate it either.
