In Thailand we only have these two:

I use the balanced one but I suppose the other one should work.

Sorry, I realized I forgot to answer the second part of the question. Why, well because there isn’t much brand choices to start with and because other nutrients are supplied via the water column, so the balanced version of the osmocote makes it simple afterwards.

I try to use any variety that takes longer to break down. That way it should last longer, and keep the plants happier for longer too. Warm aquarium water will increase the rate of decomposition and fertz release.
I just chuck a small handful in with the substrate. Much cheaper than root tabs which are often composed of Osmocote anyway.
