Hi there,
Has any body used JBL Ferropol (the weekly one) alongside shrimp?
The reason I ask is that the ingrediants list copper which I know is not good for shrimp. But I don't know the actuall amount of copper in the product is it within safe levels?

What amount of copper is there in the Ferropol? I have seen similar questions before, and the amount of copper is minute (like microgram per liter).

I was going to buy a bottle, though a chap at a LFD advised caution but he couldnt be sure.

We use it in a tank with Amano Shrimp and no ill effects at all. Its a bit expensive though..... am looking for a much cheaper alternative.....

Id rather buy good stuff and the ferropol 24 to me has already paid for itself.

I bought some JBL ferropol (not 24), went for it and dosed my tank.
My shrimp are fine and dandy!

Just a note to say that my shrimps continue to be ok.
My plants have also started to grow really well again.
