Default pond fertilizer sticks in aquarium?

hey folks, up here in the cow hampshire, its pretty difficult to find decent
fertilizers for planted tanks. The LFS has started carrying a variety of
pond fertilizers - mostly plant spikes. has anyone tried these in tanks?

other than the volume difference, is ther any reason I shouldn't? I can
break the sticks up fairly acurately using a modified pill splitter, but
before I try dropping small bits into the tank (125 gal), i figured I'd poll
for opinions...

thanks
-JD

If you're trying to grow algae they're great.
