How many Jobe's tomato spikes in one container?

All I have right now to fertilize my waterlilies is Jobe's tomato spikes. I've never used them before. If my containers are 7 gallon containers (about 18" across and 7" deep), should I use 2-3 per container about every month, or is that too much? That's how many of the pond tabs I usually use, but I don't know how to compare them.
I think I need to order some pond tabs in bulk, since I go through one of those smaller bottles of pond tabs just for one fertilization.

Cath, I use three or four tomato spikes twice a season in my lily pots and that seems to work very well. I have all the lilies that I want.
