    Seachem Flourite Substrate safe for shrimp?

    My tank currently has Seachem Red Flourite Substrate. Thinking to add some Cherry Shrimp( red, yellow, blue, black) and Amano down the road. Is the substrate okay for them?

    I have never used that substrate but seems your looking at cherry type shrimp as long as the soil is cycled and not new should be good i would test ammonia and nitrates first to make sure

    Florite substrate is inert rock. It is fine for shrimp.
