greenteam Update: No dead shrimp since I got them so that's a big plus and now I have 3 berried females so pumped about that.

The two females just hangout on their own away from the pack lol

greenteam I'm moving homes soon so I went to the new house were buying and tested the water and very different. So I made the move to RO water save headaches in the future lol.

Since I have to reset tank during move I figured I try azoo plant grower substrate and see how tigers like it.

shift In general I would say TDS sounds high. You could mix your tap water with RO to lower it a bit. But if they are berried don't worry about it

greenteam I purchased them on aquabid

greenteam So my OEBT are now berried as of the 1st lol. I did just purchase Borneowild Stout and Shield so hope that helps with survival rate.

greenteam So got them in the mail today and acclimating. I ordered 10 and got 15 so its really sweet deal. Plus I got some plants for free.

The packing was really good even down here in Florida the water was still cool to the touch. And their color looks great really nice blue and only 2 blondes.

OEBT in Florida tap water

So I have about 6 OEBT in my 20g Tank right now using straight tap water. I found some on sale for 4.50 for blues not blonde's and ordered a few more. Is anyone else had success keeping them in our local water?

My tank sits at Ph:7 Gh:8 Kh:4 TDS:200 Temp:72

I will post a picture when they get in try to track how they do.
