Ferts and shrimp


Has anyone used Nutrafin Plant Gro in their tank with shrimp?

Total Nitrogen (N).................................0.15%

Boron (B).........................................0.0005 %

Iron (Fe).............................................. 0.26%

Molybdenum (Mo)........ 0.0007%

There is a verrrrrry small amount of copper in bottle. I'm a big fan of heavily planted tanks and purchased a big bottle of the stuff before getting into shrimp. Is it safe to use this in the shrimp tanks?

Yeah its pretty safe to use ferts with copper as long as they are in low quantities. Lots of people use Plantex CSM+b which has copper in it, in their shrimp tanks with no problem.

It will be fine.

5 ten-thousandths of a percent of copper is essentially nothing. I doubt it will even meet the needs of the plants
