Is ingesting fertilizer toxic for shrimps?

I dose dry ferts daily in my shrimp tank. KH2PO4, K2SO4, and Plantex CSM + B. I skip out on nitrates and iron because of their possible bad effects. But when I dose, it never dissolve right away. Big chunks sit at the bottom, and I worry about a shrimp munching one some. Are they dangerous, if consumed?

I would say some are some are not. Best bet is disolve in a cup of tank water first then add it to the tank
