However, to my surprise, my plants didn't even flinch. I knew it was plant safe but I thought it would have some effect. They are just growing as they used to, still getting great growth and color, so not seeing any side effects there. Snails are dying but that's fine by me. Fish is not acting/looking any different.

Just saying, I had my concerns as well and now I am confident that this stuff is safe for plants and fish.
I was sort of sure it would be safe on my plants and fish but the thing i was most worried about is that it would kill my snails, it was a pain to find Trumpet snails in my area so i had to get them from someone on the forums. I would rather NOT kill those, glad to see i was smart by not adding any until i had some good info, thanks for trying it out
