Hi all. I'm new to planted tanks and had started with fluval stratum under the substrate, but my Java ferns weren't doing well and even my sword isn't growing as much as it was when I set the tank up a year ago. There's no added CO2. I've decided to start using Seachem Flourish. Is this a good idea even though I've got Fluval stratum?
My main question is about my shrimp. I'm 5 weeks into rearing ghost shrimp babies and they're in a breeding box in my main (newer) tank. I know Flourish says it's safe for shrimp, but is that also true for shrimp babies? Or will even the tiniest bit of copper be bad? Anyone used Flourish with shrimp babies??
Thanks

Most fertilizers should be fine for shrimp. However, if you're concerned, may I suggest NilocG Thrive S? It is specifically formulated for shrimp-focused planted tanks, and what I use in all of my tanks. It is lower in nitrogen than the other Thrive formulas and also is copper-free.

For the record, I keep my shrimp on an aquasoil substrate as well.
