FAQ: Can I use Seachem Flourish Trace™ together with _______?

Another Company's product

There are a lot of aquarium products on the market, and while most of them will work perfectly fine together in the aquarium, some will not.  We can't 100% guarantee any product that's not our own, but here's a few quick rules:

  1. Avoid using products that overlap in function.  Either one works and so it's the one you should be using, both work and so it's a waste to use them both, or neither work and you should be looking for a third, better product.  In the case of Flourish Trace™, using multiple trace element supplements could lead to a buildup of unused nutrients.
  2. Research the products you use carefully.  Typically, if a product or medication is volatile enough to react with a plant supplement, the company will mention it on the label or website, or you can call in to check.
  3. When in doubt, wait a day.  While there should not be any interaction between Flourish Trace™ and another product, leaving 24 hours in between the doses will avoid possible fish stress from rapidly changing water parameters.


Seachem® Products

It's safe to use Flourish Trace™ alongside any of the other Seachem® products that are recommended for freshwater planted systems.  Keep in mind that not every product that is recommended for freshwater is also recommended for a planted tank - while Flourish Trace™ will not directly interact with any of the following products, you will obtain he best results in your planted tank by using products intended for plants.                                                                                   

Here's some Seachem® freshwater products that are Not recommended for planted tanks

Neutral Regulator® Alkaline Regulator™ Arowana Buffer™
Acid Regulator™ Discus Buffer® Betta Basics™
Replenish™ Medications (in water)  

As previously mentioned, it is perfectly fine to use these products alongside each other, but the products listed here are specifically intended for freshwater tanks without plants.
