From memory I did a test and one API root tab lifted ammonia from 0 to 0.25 in a 5gal bucket. Not sure on copper content of them but is usually not a problem.

Thanks Dela. I have 3 Kuhli loaches and I'm in the market for a bamboo shrimp. I just want to make sure it doesn't hurt them

Not 100% but I'm pretty sure that all red plants are high light only and are very hard to grow without injected co2. I'd stick to Anubis, Java fern etc

U might be able to get a type of crypt to grow but u will need root tabs and dry ferts or flourish and excel.
