Fire Red Cherry Shrimp and Root Tabs.

    I'm starting a RCS 10 gallon tank with gravel now but I want live plants. My other two tanks are dirted. I read that if I have only gravel, I can use root tabs and fertilizer & the plants will grow. Will the fertilizer hurt my shrimp?

    No, root tabs & fertiliser shouldn't hurt your shrimp, a lot of people with planted tanks have shrimp & use fertilisers with no problems

    I have Aquasoil so i don't use root tabs but i dose ferts pretty and its never affected my shrimp. Even with CPDs and Dario Darios my population still grows steadily.
