Can I keep cardinal shrimp in my water?
Straight from the tap -
TDS - 126
Ph - 7.8-8.0
Kh - 1-2
GH - My new kit is defective :/
Living in Florida, the well water has always been hard. I've tried cardinia with a low amount of success. Neos as always, have been easy, but lately they've been incredibly boring. The original copper pipes in my house were replaced with pvc and I no longer have a problem with 550 tds and an undetectably high ph lvl. Cardinal shrimp have recently caught my eye. I'm thinking of dedicating a 10 gallon to them. It's been up a week with 53 watts of light, sand/gravel sub, Eheim 2211 with 2213 prop (more flow), and some anacharis. As far as I know, having the tank cycle for awhile and a good amount of rocks/crushed coral would complete the tank for cardinals. If anyone who has/is keeping them can say their tank/water specs, I'd appreciate it.
