ADA Substrate for Crystals/TBs
I am building a new shrimp tank with a new 40G tank I got. I need to order my aquasoil and have really liked ADA Amazonia II. Unfortunately I want my ph lower to help my baby survival as I simply could not keep the babies alive in 6.8pH.
Should I :
1. Use 3 Bags (3x9L) ADA Africana
2. Use 2 Bags (2x9L) ADA Africana and 1 Bag (1x9L) ADA Amazonia II Powder Size as a cap?
3. Or 2/3 Amazonia and 1/3 Africana and mix it
Does anyone have any tips on setting up a new tank?
I want to cap the Africana with Amazonia Powder. What are your thoughts?
I want to add a base layer of Mosura BT-9 & Mosura Old Sea Mud. Inquired to Liam for his special substrate sauce.
WIll be using sponge filter + canister filter from established CRS tank and transfer them over.
Aiming for a 6.0pH (good for my TBs and CRS I think), gH 5, and a TDS of around 100-125
