DIY iron?


So I was in my garage and I found a gallon jug of cheleated iron ment for terristreal plants. Would this be safe? I have 3 Amano shrimp. Has any one ever tried anything like this?

What does the list of ingredients say? You would need to know what is in the jug, and in what concentration.

I don't think it's an iron issue, but a light and possibly circulation issue.

Your floaters are benefiting the most from light and nutrients.
