    Hey everyone,

    I recently bought two wood shrimp and two amano shrimp for my 30g. It's planted, so I was wondering if I could keep using liquid fertilizer and liquid carbon for the plants? Or will it harm the shrimp?

    Didn't occur to me until I got them home.

    I know nothing about liquid carbon but I use liquid ferts (flourish) with my shrimp and it’s fine.

    Thanks everyone. I've done a bit more digging and it seems others largely agree with you. Looks like liquid carbon will be okay too. I just can't shake this worry that shrimp are more delicate than other fish. Should probably just stop worrying.
