  1. ada amazonia still working for me after five years, only use ro water and salty shrimp gh plus, help shrimp soil still working after 3 years under the same regime. ph stays at 5.5-6 i can never trust the accuracy ot the systems to measure ph, do you?
  2. get the new amazonia in a bucket with ro water and keep doing water changes and testing until it stops leaching ammonia, 6-8 weeks, then you can change your soil in one go
  3. at a loss for an explanation, first thing i would doubt the test kit, maybe get a new one and see

  5. You could Start a new line
  6. i suggest that ammonia at 2-4 ppm is fine and should build up the population of ammonia decomposing bacteria. ada, in my experience, keeps leaching ammonia for about 6 weeks so need to be patient, ..safest strategy seems to be to be prepared to wait for 2 months, i would not do anymore water changes until ammonia and nitrite drop to undetectable, then a large water chance to wash out the nitrate and start stocking
  7. 5,5is my ph with help shrimp soil. i use ro water remineralized to tds 65-70 with salty shrimp gh+ giving me a gh of 4 ; tds in the tank is about 90-100 and my pinto shrimp thrive. Are active and breeed
  8. My ro water comes at tds of 1: y add salty shrimp until i reach gh of 4 and that gives me a tds of 65 to 70 . And that is what i use for water changes, the tank stay at a tds of 90 -100. . I used to add mosura tds up But have stopped doing it a long time ago, no molting problems and good baby survival
  9. Yes Ada releases amonía for 2 or 3 months, and as chappy said, using tap water will short en the life of your Ada soil. Want it out. Ada is superb. Mine still going strong after 3years
  10. If you pinto males are black you will get black híbrids carrying red. If your pinto males are red you will not get black crossing with red crystals
  11. Do you happen to know who fathered the clutch..?
  12. I treated my tank with Febendazol and it took 8 months before méritos survived
