Shrimp and Dry Ferts

What were your experiences with shrimp and dry ferts? I'm running a Low-tech No CO2 tank with RCS and Tom Barr recommends adding some KH2PO4, Equilibrium, and KNO3. How do shrimp do with these? Does it kill them?

As with anything else, the dose makes the poison.

With dry fertilizers being dosed via EI, there is no harm to shrimp, however.

I ran a high tech tank with CO2 and PPS dosing and it was my best breeding tank I've had. YMMV.
