hello
I bought API leaf Zone and found it's missing Nitrogen & Phosphorus so i got both of this from Seachem .
and i used lower dosing (just to be safe) i didn't poured it to the tank directly but
took water from the tank & mixed it all 3 well in an external container and slowly poured it back with a syringe.

Looking at the tank top now i see something resembling an OIL SPILL ! :(
is that typical & to be expected ???

Also i notice one (of 5) of my amano shrimp looks in serious stress
and some of the neon tetra's lower rear fin looks to have a noticeable more white in it .
(hard to explain how it looks, but could that be the start of fin rot & unrelated to the chemicals i've used?
thank you.
