    Hi All,

    I have recently added shrimps to my Planted Tank. I am worried if copper content in my fertilizer will kill my fish.

    Can you please let me know if Tetra Flora Pride is okay for Shrimp tank ?? Does it has any copper content ??

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I know Florapride doesn't contain any copper at all. I've had no trouble with Flourish Comprehensive in an RCS tank & Comprehensive does contain copper.

    The trace amounts of Copper will not harm shrimp. They actually require small amounts to survive as do all living things. (small amount is the operative word here!)

    I have been dosing this for the last 8 months in both of my tanks with shrimp and had no problem with dying shrimp,

    be very careful with "easycarbo" its very easy to od this stuff
