sources of nitrate--bloodmeal?

Looking back through archives, I noticed my question has been asked but not 
been answered.

This is the wrong time of year to be looking for nitrate of soda, or sodium 
nitrate, or plain old nitrogen. It's a fertilizer that stores bring in for 
the spring growing season. The closest thing I could find was bloodmeal, 
rated at something like 12-0-0. I'm sure there's more in there than nitrogen, 
and I'd bet the plants would love it--but is it in any way detrimental to the 
fish or other occupants? Anybody ever tried this?
