    :( Hello, i just joined and i have a problem with Flourish Iron, it seem when i use the amount i'm supposed to the minute it hits the water and goes into the air i get a reaction to it. It's an awful stinging and itching . I dosed twice with this and both times the same thing. My question is, is there anything out there that is natural and will not cause this? I have heard of worm castings , but have not seen anything that proves this stuff works. I know there must be something that does irritate the skin and is safe to use. Please, if anyone is an expert in plant keeping for an aquarium , it would be appreciated if you could give me lots of advice.

    Thank You

    You can try API Leaf Zone. It's iron plus potassium and has a different form of iron than what Flourish uses.
