Fertilizer for planted snail tank?

I have a low light aquarium with low tech plants, one Betta fish in a 10 gallon, java fern, Moss, Anubis, and 4 crypts and jungle Val that doesnít look good. Should I add a liquid fertilizer? I have 2 mystery snails and 1 nerite, are there snail safe fertilizers?

The copper levels in most fertilizers are so low it won't affect your snails. I use flourish in my tank and it is full of baby snails.

Sure; but maybe wonít have the fulll spectrum of micro nutrients your plants need.

I have all of those plants in a shrimp tank with no root tabs of fertilizer though. What do you mean when you say the plants donít look good.
