Iron Enriched Fert For Shrimps ?

Ok so i know copper is a big no no for shrimp tanks but is Iron enriched ferts ok ?
I was given a bottle of Hagen Nutrafin Plant Gro, its Iron enritched and says on the front 0.15 - 0-0 (no idea what that means)

I was going to use it for my 30 gallon community tank, i only have 4 shrimp and around 10 mollies/platy's will this be ok to use ?

Just to add, i have just read on the label that it does contain traces of Chelated copper at 0.0005% but it says "it wont affect fish or other aquatic organisms.

Based on reading other folk's posts, I don't think you'll have any issues with that concentration and inverts. Remember that live plants will take up small amounts of copper and regular water changes will help prevent any larger buildups.
