Sachem flourish vs snails


Would using flourish in my tank hurt the snails? I've had a die off it seems with my mts. Not sure why

I've used it regularly in my 40b before I tore it down to rescape, and never had any problems with my mystery snail.

Hasn't seemed to bother my snails. MTS, ramshorn, pond, and nerite. I dose heavy, the recommended initial dose on a daily basis.

I don't use it in shrimp tanks to play it safe but is has never adversely affected any of my snails.

I dose Seachem Flourish once a week on 3 of my shrimp tank that has various snails in it, spixi, mts, nerite. They're safe!

Thanks for the responses. For whatever reason it seems my mts in one tank are dropping dead

Could be low calcium, low ph below 7, high copper. Check your water parameters and let us know to figure it out.

Ph-7.2-7.4
Ammonia-0
Nitrites-0
Nitrates-5-10ppm

Tanks definitely cycled, it's been set up for maybe 2 months but the canister filter on it has been running for 6 months with heavy bioload so no worries there. I don't have a copper test that's why I was wondering and figured I'd ask here. I'm doing nothing different them I've been doing and I change around 20% of the water weekly
