There have been people that have successfully dosed with urea, but I do not think they ever dosed when there was livestock in the aquarium.

i dose urea and NH4 with german blue rams in the tank, they also bread many times in the same tank. plant also grew better with urea and nitrate combination.

Ultilmate fertilizer for faster plant growth
