I was wondering how often I should use seachems florish with my snails, will it hurt them, so far I have only been using it once a week in my 55 gallon tank, right after every water change, does anyone have anyexperience with using this product with snails. Thanks

I actually dose 3x per week of each 1ml in my 10 gal and I own 4 neritina snails. They don't seem to have any issues. But I assume if you overdose the Flourish Seachem that might cause them die for sure... Smile

Within the recommended dosage there's no problem at all. I've been using Flourish for about 10 years and my tanks are always loaded with snails/shrimp of many different species. My typical dosing routine is 1 ml for every 100 L, twice a week. Of course it depends on how densely planted your tank is and other factors...
