    I say that's a decent price but I dislike the lack of info relevant to the product they are selling...
    2.5g Betta tank (Rayne)
    2.5g Apple Snail tank (Silver)
    1.5g Saltwater MTS vase (tough little dudes)
    40g red ear slider tank (Kappa)

      Have you checked out the extra info on their website? Those look like homemade tabs.

          They remind me of RootMedic Tabs, but I think they were more of an off white than the yellow of these.

            I really don't know anything about them. They're really cheap so I was interested in them.

              If they are cheap they could be something as simple as wax coated urea pellets. Because they do not look like a manufactured capsule, I'd be leery without an ingredients list as well as a guaranteed analysis statement.

                It just looks like Osmocote in a gel cap. You can make that by yourself for cheap. Just beware that you'll probably have tiny yellow balls all over the substrate.

                  I agree, once the cap dissolves the little yellow balls work their way to the top of the soil. If they made them with the correct osmocote, it should be osmocote plus in there. It is possible to make root tabs using pottery clay with dry ferts or osmocote if you wanted to make something cheap that works.

                    Osmocote is brown/tan. Osmocote Plus is off white. These are filled with something yellow.
