Seachem Flouris Trace elements(tranquilizer)?

Just wondering if this happens to anyone else too .When i add 4 1/2 caps seachem flourish trace elements once or twice a week, and then after a hour i put it in the tank ,i notice my fish just hanging around dazed (not active like they're always are )and than a half hour later passes , they're scavenging the bottom of the tank looking for food (wth). Than after they are done scavenging the sand bed for about half hour ,they go back to their normal selves chasing each other


wth is in this seachem flourish ? thc ?

Maybe it's too much? I always worry about adding all the metal ions to the water. :/

4 1/2 caps? How big is the tank? That is enough for a 270 gallon tank. I dribble it in and have never seen any reaction with the fish.... but I use the recommended dose.

Maybe the cap is a difference size, mine is 5ml per cap and that is for 60 gallons.
