Shrimp and RO/DI

Hey All,

I finally have my RO/DI system setup. I have equilibrium to put into my RO/DI barrels. I was wondering, would shrimp prefer pure RO/DI or RO/DI with equilibrium added. I have heard that pure RODI is bad for fish, but wasn't sure if shrimp are the same way. I tried searching on here and couldn't find any definitive evidence. I even found some people dose pure RODI with fish in tank Any input would be appreciated

test your ro/di to make sure of your parameters.

it might be spot on for shrimp depending on the source water.

if it hits between 3-5 (or as low as 2) gh, ur gold!
