ya it is safe, i also use it as well...just that it doesn't contain enough iron. you have to supplement Fe separately

That's something I was wondering. When I used ADA Be Green, my wendtiis used sent out brown or bronze leave. Even since I am using comprehensive, they are sending out green leaves. I always felt it had something to do with the trace mix (may be less Fe...).

I might add Seachem Iron and see the results. Can anyone suggest me the dosage?

for your info it doesn't matter that much whether you add liquid ferts to crypts or not.
they are root feeders predominantly.and thats why they have bumper root system.99 % absorption is taken by roots. iron absorption in crypts is through roots.
and redness and browness has nothing to do with iron.its about high light. high wattage produces pigments that are used for protection of photosysnthetic ones. thats the basic funda not the iron.
