For equivalent products to BT-9 and Old Sea Mud Powder, check out some the things in the BW planted tank section. Specifically, Bacter Crystal and Bacter Energy. It's hard to say exactly what the match for Old Sea Mud is, because they don't give me a composition list for Mosura, but BT-9 and Bacter Crystal....

Out of curiosity....when are you re-loading on your stock? I've been sending people here but it seems that you're still out. Popular product haha.

It's on the way. I expect it to reach me (hopefully) some time next week. As long as it doesn't take too long to get through customs.

You should totally get Barley. It's the best value in shrimp food out there. Cheap, shrimp love it, excess food left in the tank actually improves water quality (within reason).

To update shipment status: The order is still being held by customs Hopefully not much longer.

You're missing shield...I think that's probably one of the most essential ones.

I have to agree with Clay about Barley. My Neos love it and you don't clean it up because the ingredients are beneficial to water quality. It's kinda cool with the way it blows up. A little goes a long way!

I'm waiting on Shield and Color, and some PFR babies to broaden my blood lines.

So, shield over vigor? I already have GH up, grow and color. Any other recommendations?

You can use both but I'd go with SHIELD definitely. I use it with each water change and it works great....had zero shrimp deaths since I've started to use it. Click on my name and search for threads that I created...there is a HUGE one about BorneoWild Reviews....everyone chooses Shield as well.

I have these so if you have questions then let me know...I also posted my dosing regiment in the thread that I'm referencing above. Clay is a great guy by the way so he'll take care of you.
