Max Kenji It will increase PH and GH slightly.
Red Rili is pretty hardy. I don't think you will have any issue.

sub-80 Hello;

Am setting a 10 US gallon tank for breeding red rili shrimp. For Mironekuton Powder what would happen if I dosed more than instructed? As it is a buffer substance it shouldn't do anything but would it extend the dosage duration?

Max Kenji Thank you Kim,
Yeah 1 piece is good enough for any small tank.

fangster Got my products today and thanks for the samples. I'm looking forward to using them. I've been really happy with all the products I've purchased so far. If I could, I would purchase the whole line. Half is a good start.
Can I use the BENIBACHI ZEROα in my 10 gallon?
05-02-2012 09:32 PM
Max Kenji It can last up to 2 years.
I have only 1 left.
05-02-2012 09:22 PM

The BENIBACHI ZEROα is made from a special kind of clay which help absorbs harmful ammonia, nitrous acid, heavy metal and magnesium from the tap water, making it safe for shrimp keeping. It purifies water quality and controlling the occurrence of the pathogenic bacteria and the algae. It also contains important natural mineral that releases gradually into the aquarium. A Must For Any Benibachi Tank
Please use it in high flow area, in or outside of the filter. Use 1 pc per 20G tank.

This product looks interesting. How long does it last before replacement?

No they don't.
They are similar to mineral rock but also can absorb ammonia, nitrate and stabilize the water parameter.

Max Kenji I'd recommend putting 5 balls in the aquarium and the rest in the canister filter. Once you put the balls in the water, they will absorb harmful substances in the water, they can stay active up to a maximum of 2 years. If algae grows on the balls, just use a tooth brush to clean them off.

jkan0228 What would happen if say you used all 10 crimson bee balls in a 10G? Would they be active for 4 years?
