Default Using Miracle Grow in fishtanks

Has anyone tried using something like Miracle Grow for houseplants with all
the micronutrients in a fishtank? Does it make the algae grow wild or harm
fish?

Terrestrial fertilizers contain ammonia and are inappropriate for fishtanks.

Thanks. I wasn't aware of that. I just read the entire back panel of the

Miracle Grow can have quite a bit of copper, as I have been warned.

I agree. It's probably not for aquariums.
