Fluval Shrimp Stratum
SunSun Cannister Filter (fully cycled already)
Coralife Light (med/low light for low tech tank)
Large Sponge Filter
Frogbit (and prob Duck Weed, but not if I can help it!).
Water will be RO reminerialized with Nutrifin Cichlid Conditioner (as per Speedie)
Am I missing anything? I really want these guys to do well. They're my first expensive shrimp.
Liam says that a cause for Taiwan Bee deaths is long gestation periods. There was something else too, but I forgot. Anyway, I would get some Mosura Gravidas because I tried it because it claimed to help berried shrimp not drop their eggs, and it actually worked! Now I have 4 berried CRS (out of 9) and there were two OEBT females that berried, but they never did before.
It's RO water, so soft as soft can be (my tap water is practically RO too). I’m trying to achieve the params Speedie is keeping them at (hence using the same remineralizer and aiming of a close to neutral pH).
Choose your substrate according your shrimp's need. Amazonia bring ph down to 6.4, Africana bring ph down to 5.9, Malaya brings ph down to 5.5.
My Amazonia brings my pH down under 6. I heard that the new Amazonia buffers around the same as Africana/ Malaya too? Anyway, a lot of people have had success with Amazonia but there are mixed reviews on FSS.
