Its been a month and 2 weeks since the tank has been setup and haven't seen one female with eggs. Majority of the red cherry shrimp have line on their bodies. Should I get more shrimp? I already have 10 red cherry shrimp.
I would just wait they might still be getting use to there new home. You have to just sit back and give them sometime and keep everything stable. They could be still be young to do you see any saddles yet.
Did a Water test via Tetra Water test kit and Got these values:
Nitrite: Less than 0.3mg/l
The mineral powder is doing its job, am getting the GH and KH values except PH since it starts at 7.4 but goes down along the days but the process increased due to CO2 injection. But I'd rather have a greater GH value so PH fluctuation would be less drastic.
I love reading this thread, when you set up your tank it inspired me to make my own shrimp only tank So thanks!
Aren't there supposed to be 0 nitrite and ammonia and then just nitrate readings? plus kh/gh/ph
