Organic Seaweed Powder

Recommended Posts

Jordan

Hi everyone,

I got this from my local pet store, it is 100% organic seaweed.

It naturally contains copper but I have read conflicting information about copper, I also have read seaweed is great from shrimp health. 

Please let me know what you all think, if this is safe to scatter like baby shrimp powder or even to make some home made shrimp-pops (the powdered food on skewers)

Thanks in advance 🦐

Thats a good question!

Shrimps, like every creature do indeed need copper from what I understand, the probblem is too much (and that doesn't need to be much either) is very toxic to them if too much?

I don't think I would risk it personally, though I can't see how much copper it has in it, it just says traces?

If you have a spare small tank I might try it in that with a couple of cull shrimps first!

Copper is an essential element for shrimps in trace amounts. 

Too much exposure to copper will "burn" their gills. But this is with algae treatments <edit> - Or fertilisers, that use chelated copper. . 

You will be fine with copper found in seaweed.

I feed my shrimps Nori sheets, occasionally.
