Aqua Vitae All in One 500ml- Shrimp safe (free shipping)
The PlantGuy's Aqua Vitae All-In-One Fertilizer is a highly concentrated liquid fertlizer. Most commercial fertilizers in pet stores are watered down overpriced products. Our all in one combines the macros and micros together. Many other commercial fertilizer producers sell a bottle for each nutrient. N, P, K, Micros. This one package replaces all of those. If you do want them separately we have that option in our store as well (for a fraction of the cost you will pay at your LFS).
A note on Shrimp safe:
Certain products are advertised online as being "shrimp safe". This is not false advertising however it insinuates that all other products that aren't labeled as such must not be shrimp safe. As a result of this clever marketing strategy i receive multiple emails a week asking me if my product is shrimp safe.so in order to save myself time and unnecessary confusion for the customer , i am now advertising my product as shrimp safe. The reality is that most if not all fertilizers are safe for shrimp . The danger for shrimp is the level of copper in the micronutrient. Copper is essential for shrimp but at very high levels it becomes toxic (to other inhabitants as well). A number that seems to appear quite often when doing research on the toxicity of copper to shrimp and fish is
- shrimps is 0.03 mg/l (mg per litre).
- algae and bacteria is 0.08 mg/l.
- some fish, snails, and plants are 0.10 mg/l.
Our high tech version actually uses less micronutrient than our low tech version and leans more on the iron (Fe) as a result has a lower copper content. Here are the copper content of our fertilizers. If you still feel uncomfortable using our product then please use a copper free "shrimp safe" product.
High tech- 0.001093664 mg/L
Low tech- 0.002187328 mg/L

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
Yes I understand that I would dose accordingly, but if my 54g (10ml) does NOT have a large amount of plant does dosing per gallon only remains?
That's where you'd make an adjustment. The 2ml is just a guideline. Alot of this is trial and error..
Is there any advantage to using the Aqua Vitae Hi-Tech fertilizer in a low tech planted tank?
Low tech setup also benefit from fertization. The low tech option would be the safer choice as there's more room for error. The high tech option is highly concentrated so it's better value but less room for error
Is this fertalizer shrimp safe?
Yes. As are pretty much any aquarium fertilizer.
How many gallons does one pack treat? What size bottle?
the pack is designed to be used with a 500ml bottle. The suggested dosing is 2ml per 10 gallons 3 times a week so for a 10 gallon tank it would last 83 weeks.
