I was dosing all the seachem products that did not contain coppers due to the shrimp, but I was reading and some posts people that keep shrimp say they can tell a difference in the way the shrimp behave when they dose and dont... dosing making them shy and hidden which they said wasnt good. They also mentioned if you were using a rich substrate you should need to dose.... What would you gentlemen/ ladies recommend for dosing/ schedule? The light is sitting right on the top of the tank... so roughly 10 to 11 inches. Thanks!

Also the tank has been running since the end of July. I started dosing and upped the c02, about 2-3 weeks ago...
