I was waiting for one for several years now:-)

You can use it with no ill effects, perhaps it helps, perhaps it doesn't.
I used it for a time. Not expensive either.
It would not hurt to add it and if your one of those people who likes to add
more than NPK, CO2 light and traces.....well sure, why not?
Doesn't hurt fish , shrimps etc. I did not add lots of it, 1-2 drop per 10
gallons weekly.
