Seachem Flourish and Shrimp

Okay I went to pick up some flourish for my plants but read the label and it says it has a tiny amount of copper in it ( very tiny about 0.001 percent) But I am worried. I didnt buy it because I want to get shrimp eventually and I dont want to waste money getting a fert I cant use once I get shrimp.

Has anyone used This fert with Shrimp? does it harm them?

I've used it in shrimp tank, they didn't die. It's a trace amount so it won't affect shrimps.

Yes, the amount of heavy meals and copper is very minimal and almost unnoticeable. It will have no effect on shrimp unless widely overdosd, I myself have ghost shrimp that breed in a tank with x2 weekly x2 overdose of seachem flourish

nice :D Well the dose on the bottle was for a 60 gal o.o so if 5 ml is for 60 gal, divide 60 by ten ad you get 6 gal( my tank size) sooo divide 5 ml by 10.. * wipes out a calculator* half a ml. 2 times a week. the bottle will last me forever o.o

Yup. Of one drop equals 1/20th of a millimeter and a millimeter equals 50 liters for seachem flourish then for a Us 6 gallon and which would be around 20 liters you would need around 7 drops but I would recommend 10 drops as I always overdose for best results, as long as you don't severely over dose, you should be fine
