Miracle Gro Orangic Issues
Has anybody else ever had issues using this as a base substrate. Issues meaning harmful or deadly for fish/shrimp.
I currently have it in my 29G and 10G. Both are capped with another substrate and do not contain a lot of the miracle gro.
The 10G has recently turned into a cherry shrimp tank. I got some shrimp locally and within 2 weeks there were hundreds of babies in the tank. Now, a month or so later, I can count 3. There are also two ghost shrimp that have been in the tank since it was first set up. Is this an issue with the miracle gro or ghost shrimp?
The 10G is topped with regular sand, no traces of nitrate, nitrite or ammonia and was cycled before fish ever went in it originally.
In my 29G I use to have a bunch of bright red Cherries as well and over time they disappear.
