Is Seachem Clarity invert-safe?

I know some water clarifiers are not invert safe. Does anyone know if Seachem Clarity would kill amanos?

how big a tank and how many fish? If its a smaller tank why not just move the fish to a temp home for an hour or two and tehn do a full clean and change of the tank and substrate? Then you get a clean tank and a new substrate and no debris after changing etc and you can even get rid of snails this way too. Worked for me with my 20Gallon long after I used it to grow some top water pond plants and again with my 5.5 gallon fluval edge when I changed the substrate.

I don't understand why you would do this. It would cause a complete cycle of the tank. Not a good idea. Unless im missing something here.

What I would do is just get some micro filtration pads and maybe a pad to put over the intake of your filter. Micro filtration pads work wonders with polishing the water.

My GF's tank has sand substrate and when first put in Tetra's water clarifier + Aquaclear quick filter attachment for the powerhead cleaned it up within 6 hours. Snails went into the tank about 4-5 hours after adding the clarifier and none died so it was safe at least on that time frame.

A Seachem tech told me Clarity is invert safe. I probably won't need it because I'll rinse the new substrate 1 million times :-)
