Actually, I'm not sure either plant is truly aquatic. I know the green and white one in the background is a Dracena which is definitely terrestrial.

Seachem will answer any question you have about their products. I use Seachem Flourish Comprehensive in a tank with two Vampire Shrimp, a Sakura or two and several CPO. I do not use Seachem Flourish Phosphorus.

When adding new products I always dose half and gradually increase. However, if I were worried, I'd just replace plants instead of taking a chance.

Oh I know that back one isn't meant to be in there. I was furious when I found that out. I just haven't gotten a new plant to replace them so I have been keeping it there. I will be transplanting the Dracena to a pot outside.

Can the Comprehensive be good enough for the plant having issues? Or do I have to specifically have the Phosphorus one?

I'd just try the Comprehensive at half-strength (a bit less than 1 ml) twice a week for a couple of weeks and gradually increase to full dose (almost 2 ml). I now use a full 2 ml in my 20 long but you've seen my tank.

Okay that sounds good, I don't want to wipe out my snails n shrimp. I really like them a lot and would be a shame to lose them. I might do once a week at half dose just so I can remember.
