BorneoWild Shield question

Hi,
I recently ordered BorneoWild Shield after reading how everyone here loves it . I should be getting it by next week if not Sat.

I find it a bit confusing as far as it is a food and water "additive" but either way how many times a week does everyone use it and this is the only thing you feed ?


Thank you

Dose it after water change. Spread it over the moss. Shrimps will pick it from there. It is a supplement..

Okay thank you. I found the description rather vague but since everyone here loves it, I ordered it.

Plam man, adds nothing to his tank. As so people have luck with additives some dont. I have had mixed luck with stuff people say is great, and bad luck with others. I am more like plam now and keep it simple.

no luck on my shrimp tank with shield, to me, it seem like just another marketing trick.

It say 1 spoon for 200 litters. Does that mean you have to mix with 200 litters water outside first, and them dose depend on your tank gallon?

200 = 58gal?

I agree that keeping it simple is the best way to go. I just rely on weekly water changes because thankfully the water here is great , even in my planted tanks I do not add anything.

In this case a few here really loved it so decided to try it.
