be careful

If you are refering to Hortrilon by Compo (Basf) it is widely used in Spain for traces, BUT be careful a it has way too much copper in it.

I could never keep shrimp alive while using hortrilon. When I switched to Kelamix (another trace element mix) never had a problem. Snails are much less sensitive to copper than shrimps.

Hortrilon composition

5 % FeEDTA.
3 % Magnesium
2.5 % copper EDTA.
2.5 % Manganese EDTA.
0.5 % Boron
0.5 % Molibdenum
0.5% Zinc
0.005% Cobalt EDTA.
