Bacter crystal is a bacterial starter culture. Kind of like the liquid ones you see in pet stores and given with every aquarium. Except that, well, it actually works.

Beacter energy is more designed to keep benefial bacterial growth going strong for the long term.

Hullo I just bought 2 Amano's and want to have PFRs in the future.


I use Microbe Lift Special Blend, Nite out and will start Thera P soon.

Besides Humic and Barley what do you recommend for the Amano's that would be good for PFRs, too?

My tank is a fluval spec V 5 g with a piece of Malaysian driftwood and has floating plants and moss:

Broad leaf water wisteria, willow moss, water sprite, dwarf water lettuce

I don't have a lot of experience with Sulawesi shrimps. We just got our first Cardinals in yesterday. As they settle I'll be experimenting with the BW products to find out what works.

Really any of the foods would be good. I'd specifically look at Spinach, Grow, and/or Color. These will provide all the nutrition your shrimp need, and are all available in small bottles. Shield is also great for increasing overall health. You shouldn't really need any of the specialized foods or supplements (White, Crimson, Stout, Vital, etc) for the shrimp you're planning on keeping. Stout would improve the appearance of your PFR's, but won't really do anything for the Amanos.

We sell PFR's as well by the way

Hi

I was wondering if the best place to buy Borneo wild products is from contacting you on the planted tank or through the southern oak aquatics website? Either way, I would be interested in buying the Borneo wild barley and shield products with the mosura bt9.
