Ada buffer Ph predicament please help!!!

Recommended Posts

I am planing to acquire some crs and crb. I am wanting to raaise the ph of the tank to about 6.4 - 6.7 to get optimal conditions for the crystal shrimp. The tank is currently at a 6 possibly lower ph I can only see so much with an API test kit  I have ada Amazonia soil which buffers the ph Down, how would I maintain a stable ph of 6.4 - 6.7 along with keeping a low ph. Also I have fire red cherrys stocked so any changes would have to be as steady and subtle as possible. I was also thinking of weaking the buffer but idk how to go about that with shrimp inside idk what to do at this point.

With the ADA soil you are going to be fighting a losing battle until the soil starts to lose its buffering capabilities. The ADA is doing what it is supposed to be doing. All my tanks run between 5.8-6.0 and my shrimps breed like rabbits.

Thanks for the help. 

Have you had any success selective breeding in breeder box?
