That's all fine and good but will just not do in the long run (I don't know HOW the CRS have been living in that). Switching both tanks over to RO water from here on out to have more control. I'll just be hoofing buckets everywhere til Christmas when I get my unit. Still doing some research, still listening to suggestions Thanks everyone!
I believe ph 8 is not an issue for PFRs, mine is like that and they breed well. Baby survival rate is good too. I only use RO for bee shrimps.
