I've read all over the place that copper is bad for shrimp. this says it contains copper. Now it's the second to last ingredient. It's copper sulfate. Is this ok for Shrimp or what's a better reconmmendation.

I'm not sure about copper being in the cuisine. I fed it to my shrimp for a long time and had no problems. They can take the small trace amounts of copper so dont worry about that. There are small amounts of copper in the plant substrates that we use.

Ok sounds good. I figured it couldn't be bad since it's for shrimp. But I figured I'd see. Yeah the said bout the copper is good for the blood just wanted to make sure. Thanks
