Hello,
Is this schedule safe for shrimp keepers? Or is this just based on a planted tank with strictly fish? I only ask because I have the same line of fertz and it seems like a lot going into the tank. I would like to hear from someone that uses this schedule in a planted shrimp tank. Please chime it.

Don

LeftC posted this on APC a few years ago. It's an MS Excel sheet that will calculate your dose after you enter in the tank gallons. I used it with good results but in my 90g the cost caught up to me.

It will prompt you do download the file and you do so at your own risk. lol

I did not have shrimp but I doubt that Seachem ferts will affect shrimp. There is really no need to be 100% accurate with the measurements of the ferts either. A little extra is better than not enough and wont have any adverse affects. As long as you dont pour a whole bottle into the tank.
