    Low pH

    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
  2. 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

    My experience with Fish Bendazole

    Yes i treated a tank with mebendazol no shrimp casualties But for 9 months nerites would die in 48 to 72 hours despite active carbón and water changes. I assume it had impregnated the Amazonia soil
  21. I never did add any bacteria, my tanks cycled at ph 5 with Ada Amazonia soil and help advanced soil, in 6 weeks, over a Heard and Still going strong, and substrates still buffering
