Sprice Posted December 30, 2015 Report Share Posted December 30, 2015 Hey there, I am very new to the world of shrimp keeping but am already finding the preparation addictive! I haven't even got the shrimp yet. I bought my 15l tank about two months ago and have been cycling (fishlessly) since. I had a bit of a bacterial bloom about a month ago and now I think the tank has finished cycling. I tested my parameters today and they came out as follows; PH 8 (consistantly 8 from start) NH3 0 NO2 0 NO3 0.25 KH 8 GH 12 Temp 24c I really want to invest in around 10 A-C Black bee shrimps but obviously want to make sure everything is just right for them before introducing them to the tank. I have a couple of small Anubias and a couple of small jave ferns and some moss balls and some redwood. I realise my PH, KH and GH are way off for black bees. I have today added (started to add gradually) some Aqualibrium salt and also ordered some almond leaves to try and soften the water a bit. I also ordered some triangle moss mats today to create a little shrimp stage at the front. I'd really appreciate any advice you can give to a complete noob, specifically what I should do about thePH, KH and GH levels. I'm so excited but really want to try and get it right first time. Thank you in advance Sally Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk mjb1959 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
