    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post here (I was just lurking for about a couple months).

    Now the really hard question:

    It is safe to use an heptagluconic acid chelated iron?

    I have found very little info on google, saying that it is not fitotoxic,
    and doesn't decompose under light.

    My Fe HGA have a 12% iron content.

    This is ferrous gluconate?

    The structural formulas look somewhat different, take a look:

    HGA

    It is the same thing really?

    How could I do a seachem flourish iron thing with this?
    (like 50g in 500ml water?)

    Greetings from Brazil!

    Tanks!

    HI,

    Maybe a smart person can answer this…
    :) Since no smart people have answered…:( well...:eek:

    I am fairly sure that is the SeaChem Iron glucanate stuff…
    ;)

    The difference in the diagrams is because one is of the HGA alone and the other with the iron complexed.
