i am am subdividing 2 40B into 3 partitions each to selectively breed some rili shrimp. i do have a full RO/DI setup that i use with my CRS and tigers, however i plan to use my well water for my rilis, the water has a ph of 8.1, kh 10, GH 11 and a TDS of around 300. i have like 8 bags of ADA Amazonia, but i rather mix my well water with RO water to get the desired parameters rather than buffer it down with the substrata, these tanks will only have moss attached to wood and screens. So my question is what is the best dark colored inert substrate to use with this shrimp in your opinion, also are the parameter mentioned above perfect for breeding rilis? or do i have so modify them some. Your help is highly appreciated. i was thinking about using eco complete with some up aqua shrimp sand (not much, i know it buffers down)
