New Fire Red/CRS Tank help
Im new to shrimp keeping and just started a 10g specifically for shrimp. I am hoping to keep Fire Reds / CRS in there. It's been running about a month with ADA Amazonia and has finished cycling and stopped leeching Ammonia already.
I am concerned about the water parameters and how to get them ideal for both species, especially the CRS. Currently it is at:
10g with plants and lots of moss
Water is plain tap water with Prime
Temp 76-78F w/o a heater
Should I get something like Seachem Equilibrium to bring the GH and TDS up?
Should I add in a piece of Malaysian driftwood? I am afraid it will lower my ph too much.
