    It's call Anti-External Parasite (T2). This is suppose to be made from herbs so shrimps are able to take it just make sure you dose 1/2 the recommend dosage for the 1st time and observe and slowly increase daily.

    This is recommend by NA and i was told this is shrimp safe when i purchase it.

    Just a note on the fertilizers: many of them contain, among other elements, the greatest villain of all: copper. Of course, it's in a very small concentration (as expected for a trace element) but I suspect if you don't have nutrient-hungry plants to conume this cooper it will kill your CRSs.

    I applied a half dose of Nutrafin Plant Gro to my 20-liter CRS-only tank (with java moss on two pcs of driftwood, one nana, one microsorum fern, some floating riccia and frogbite) and over the course of 3 days 4 out of 7 of my CRSs died.

    According to the label, Plant Gro has only 0.0005% Chelated Copper, and I used a half dose, but it seems that just this little was too much for my shrimps. I just checked Seachem's Flourish label, and it has 0.0001% Copper. Well, I won't risk it anyway.
