    Default Seachem Flourish root tabs any issues with PH changes? or the copper?

    0 Not allowed!
    I switched from api root tabs to these and I noticed they mentioned you can have "slight" drop in ph with soft water. Out of the tap my ph is 7 I haven't gotten test kits for GH or KH; my Ph is at 6.0 with all the driftwood I have and I still change 50% of the water in my 29g twice a week and it stays at a steady 6 to 6.4 at most.

    I also read online people saying these killed their shrimp or snails. I'm new to additives in general and I'm probably over reacting but with such low ph already and MTS in there I thought I'd check with people who know. I only put 3 in near my root plants ; it's been a lil over a month since I put 10 api tabs in as well. I'm trying to scale up my additives with the amount of plants.
