Starting a Yellow Neo Tank


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I went to the LFS today to test my (TAP) water parameters before I buy anything to start my first shrimp tank. I am going to have yellow neos. I don't have the tank or anything yet. The parameters were:


PH: 6.2

GH: 0

KH: around 75


She said the only thing to get rid of was the Chlorine. So what should I do from here? Do I need an RO/DI machine? Do I need a certain substrate? The PH is already super low! I’m not sure what to do now that I have these parameters. Help!

Did the pet store just use the test strips? If so don't go with those results. Order a ph and gh/kh test kit. You will also need a master test kit to cycle your new tank
