Flourish Nitrogen and Phosphorus


Hi All,

Does anyone have experience dosing with SeaChem dosing products for a planted tank?

I need to know if Flourish Nitrogen, Flourish Phosphorus and Flourish Potassium are invertebrate safe, I have some Nerite Snails, Red Cherry Shirmp and Bee Shrimp including some Crystal Red Shrimp, will it be OK? There are no warnings on the bottle so I presume they should be safe to use, but I am concerned and would like to know if anyone has dosed these products safely with Inverts?

I have been using Flourish Excel, Flourish Iron and Flourish Trace with no problems, somehow Flourish Nitrogen has got me a bit worried so I thought I would float these questions out.

Thanks,

Bobby

Seachem got back to me, they said all Flourish products are invertibrate safe, just thought I would mention it incase anyone wanted to know. I have dosed Nitrogen a while ago, all looks good.

Im currently using Seachem Phos and Potas, but I really cut back on my dosing, just dosing once a week with it (and pfertz nitro and pfertz micros). I didnt notice any ill effects from it on my red rili's.

The initial use of seachem excel is it safe for red cherry? 1 capful per 40L or should I skip that and use the regular dosage of 1 capful per 200L.

People have found that the initial large dose of Seachem Excel is not even necessary, and you can just go with the regular dosage.

When used at the regular dosage, it is safe for RCS.
