plant foods?

I posted this in planted tanks hours ago and got nothing almost no one is even looking at so Im going to try again here if thas ok
so I posted maybe a week or so ago my new planted tank.I have seachem tabs that sould be coming soon (delayed by the big storm on the upper east coast). I was wondering should I also put some kinda plant food in the water as well for the moss, ferns and floaters? Since its going to be a red cherry shrimp tank what kinds are safe? I also have a low pet budget so it needs to be affordable. Im already in a little trouble with my other on the cost of the new stuff I got. lol just cant help it got the fish bug again. says Im cut off from new fish for a while. Its a 5 gal sand with gravel cap
here is what it looks like now

If there's shrimp in there you cannot put anything with copper in the water. I am not totally sure if .001% of copper that's in the root tabs will harm the shrimp. Maybe someone with better ideas about %'s can help with that.

If you just have ferns, floaters and moss you don't need to fertilize very often. I don't fertilize my shrimp tank at all. The lamp and ammonia from them is enough to keep the salvinia growing like the weed it is.

I use the tetra FloraPride and think it works quite good. I'm not sure if it has copper.
