Using Plantex CSM+B in shrimp tank

I have amanos and use plantex csm+b. BUT it contains copper. Will EI dosing (1/2 tsp 3x a week in my 125g) be enough copper to harm the amanos and my snails?

Nope, won't harm them in typical planted aquarium applications.

It's chelated copper, I believe.

Miller Microplex is what you want to watch out for with copper.

Nope, the copper in Plantex CSM+B will be fine for shrimp.
