FAQ

I recently purchased my second bottle of Flourish and I noticed that the liquid in the bottle was a yellowish almost apple juice color whereas the original bottle I purchased contained a much darker liquid. Which one of these two colors should Flourish be? and is there anything good/bad for the aquarium as a result of the color of the Flourish?

It is normal for the color of Flourish to vary from batch to batch as this is dependent on the temperature that this product was blended at. This is of no consequence to the function of the product.

Is the "guaranteed analysis" on Flourish per dose?

Per dose, per bottle, per whatever unit of weight you choose; it is expressed as percentage by weight not in absolute weights.

Can I use Flourish on my garden vegetables?

Our products are strictly intended for aquarium use and have not been tested on anything intended for human consumption

I have a question about why you have phosphates in your Flourish? This is the #1 culprit in algae in aquaria.

I believe if you check the amount of phosphorous content (< 0.01%) you'll see that at our recommended dosing this would only add 0.0005 mg/L (ppm) of phosphate to the water. This is completely negligible and poses absolutely no risk of algae growth. So unless you are planning on a 1,000 fold overdose you don't have to worry about ever getting any measurable phosphate from using Flourish. We don't sell Flourish as a macro element supplement which is why the phosphorous, nitrogen and potassium levels are as low as they are.

I see that Flourish contains copper. Is it safe to use with shrimp?

Yes, Flourish is safe to use with shrimp. It is true that in large amounts, copper can be toxic to aquatic animals and invertebrates like shrimp and snails can be particularly sensitive. However, copper is needed in trace amounts by both plants and animals, including shrimp, which is why we include it in Flourish, Flourish Trace, and our other Trace products. The amount of copper in Flourish is so small that you would have massively overdose before you would begin to approach an amount of copper that is toxic to even the most sensitive animals. There is usually much more copper in tap water than there is in Flourish.

Does Flourish affect pH?

Used as directed, Flourish will not alter pH.

    Great Plant Food

    I have 3 low tech tanks with live plants. This product seems to give good results as plants are really growing good. I am going to have to start dividing these pretty soon . I have not seen any negative effects from using this product. It has not affected my invertebrates either.

    Great source of micro nutrients

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Seachem's Flourish is, (like the title says) a great source of micro nutrients! Because I don't use macro nutrients, I dose my 20 gallon (long) once every other week, so as to beef up my plants, but not so much that they'll start showing signs of macro nutrient deficiencies. I dose this alongside Seachem's Flourish Excel! I have a medium-tech light, and hardy, non-demanding plants, and this regimen works well for them. I do have some higher-demanding plants, like anacharis, and they're also thriving off this, not melting nor showing signs of needing other products. I highly recommend this product as a stand alone, or paired with Excel!

    Easy to use and it really works!

    By on

    Seachem Flourish is a comprehensive macro supplement for plants. It is a great all-in-one fertilizer for low light tanks. For medium light set ups you may have to add extra ferts such as iron, potassium, etc. Depending on your plants and set up. Flourish and Flourish Trace (for micro nutrients) are a great way to get into fertilizers and your plants will Flourish! No pun intended...lol
