    Planted tank with inverts?

    Ok so I want to add some fert to my tank for my plants but everything I see sad copper sulfate and I know inverts won't tolerate that. So what can I use?

    How much copper? Ferts usually have only a trace, not enough to harm most inverts. I don't think I'd risk expensive CRS etc or some of the newer snails but RCS, yeah.

    All ferts have some Cu in it, but it is fine for inverts. It is trace amounts that the plants use, so your inverts will be fine.
