    So I have those Seachem flourish tabs and i only put two in my 5 gallon tank.

    I have a sand substrate and it seems like the tabs are making the sand dark dirty brown in those areas?

    Anyone know why this is? Or if this is bad

    Sounds like your sand isn't deep enough in the back for plants. You should have the sand deeper at the back where your plants are and not so much in the front of the tank. Maybe you can move some of the sand back?

    I agree with Lady Hobbs, it sounds like your sand is not deep enough. The dirty brown colour is just from the tabs breaking down to be used later by the plants. If they are buried deeper, you won't see the color change.

    Substrate should be 3ish inches or more deep for plants to root successfully. I use one tab for ever 6" diameter circle, and change every two months.

    There's no way I can make my sand 3in deep since its only a 5g, I will try to slant the sand up toward the back to be deeper in the back, I will prob buy a bit more and this coming weekend. Thanks
