ThriveS comes in 3 different sizes:
ThriveS is a comprehensive supplement specially formulated for freshwater planted aquariums which contain shrimp. Due to the sensitivity of freshwater shrimp it is important to have a balanced composition of nutrients. ThriveS does not contain copper which shrimp are especially sensitive to.
Copper is necessary for all living organisms, including shrimp. They are however quite sensitive to elevated levels and it is because of this that it is not included in ThriveS. Shrimp will get all the necessary copper from their diet. There is no need to add additional copper through the process of dosing for your plants.
Dose is 1 pump per 5g, 1-3x per week
Analysis: N 0.43%, P 0.062%, K 4.75%, 0.38% Mg, 0.009% B, 0.005% Zn, 0.38% Fe, 0.19% Mn, 0.0009% Mo

Had not been fertilizing, as everything seems to have Copper and i didnt want to risk it w my shrimp. Started using this shrimp safe fertilizer 10 days ago. Noticed a difference in my plants by day 3 (I spread out the first dose over several days so as not to stress the shrimp.) Noticed that my nitrates began to creep up, but well within a manageable range (10ppm] and to be expected as that is an ingredient for the plants.
The included pump is an easy way to dose. Shrimps and plants seem happy.
Contacted seller with a question. Got a quick and helpful response.
Shipping arrived packaged well and on time.
This is the only place I'm going to get fertilizers going forward. Thanks so much!

I have been using Thrive for a few months now and it’s definitely helping my plants , even stem plants that would rot are now rooting! It is super easy to use , 1 pump per gallon
2-3 times a week , just make sure to do your weekly water change’s!
I just purchased A gallon jug of Thrive-S because I recently received red cherry shrimp and it is absolutely safe for them unlike other products that could harm them or be fatal.
I will use this product for as long as I have a planted tank. I recommend it to every one that is into planted tanks! Try it you won’t regret it! :)

I'd used NilocG's macro and micros for a long time but I'd never gotten into shrimp too much, these ferts GREW plants. I eventually got into shrimp to a minor degree and started seeing some losses. I was unaware of the toxic affect on shrimp, duh. I wondered if there was a macro/micro product out there and, sure enough, this is it. It is a great product!

So far things are going great. Used the normal Micros and Macros product for a year with excellent results but glad to switch to this product which is safer for our shrimp.

Great product! Well formulated for the health of shrimp & the lush growth of aquatic plants.
I've no problem recommending this product to others!

Love the ThriveS for my planted tanks with shrimp and snails. No harm to them or the fish, but lush plant growth. Easy to use/dose. Highly recommend this product if you have shrimp and/or snails in your aquarium!

I am dry starting an 5 gallon aquarium that will house shrimp and decided to buy this because I wanted the convenience of an all-in-one fertilizer. The added bonus is dosing simply requires 1 pump per 5 gallons - couldn't be easier for me.
In just a week, I have noticed a huge boost to my moss growth on my driftwood. I can't wait to see the long-term effects.

I've been using this for about a week, so it's not easy to say HOW great it is. However, I've been using NilocG PPS-PRO & EI ferts for close to a year and have never had any issues related to dosing. I trust that the products meet the claims as stated on this site and on the bottles.
I use the ThriveS on my planted nano shrimp tank (2.1 gallons, 20cm cube) and dispense this with a 1mL syringe at a rate of 0.2mL 3x week.
Fast shipping. Great packaging. Great stuff!
