I have just started up a ten gallon and I have some Flourish Excel left over from another tank. Will it harm the red cherry shrimp or amano shrimp in the tank, I'm setting up the co2 this weekend, but i would like to maximize growth.

I'm pretty sure I've seen excel only tanks with shrimp. I know I mega dosed my 35 that houses a few cherries, excel totally obliterated the hydra, now the shrimp seem even happier.

Im not sure on execl or the other flourish products, but just look out for anything with copper in it.

I have safely used 2.5 times the amount of excel in a RCS and Yellow shrimp tank with no ill effects. However, I pretty much stopped dosing at this point. After all, algae is free food. ;)
