Yes, 8.5 will not completely dissolve without CO2. I use about a triple dose of the stuff in order to get my GH up to 7-ish. Using hot water helps a little, but you still can't get a GH of 7 without...

I didn't say that you said that. But I think its true that a lot of people assume this, which is why I bothered to say that it isn't true.

Yours are definitely awesome high quality ones. And most of the nicest shrimp that I have seen pictures of are from the "pure" lines. But, as Sean pointed out from my experience, just because a...

Agreed. It is a name "game" and the winner gets the most valuable shrimp for export to Japan!

Unless they originally got their shrimp from Hisayasu Suzuki himself, before the golden mutation arrived, I don't see how...

Kent RO Right by itself is not sufficient for CRS. It is probably fine for Neos.

I use Kent RO Right in combination with Salty GH+ for some shrimp varieties, but never by itself.

I'll bet they are another shrimp bred from Chocolate neos. They look like some of the offspring that I have gotten from my Blue Diamonds.

If so, they probably only produce some % of Fantasy Blue...

No, I quit doing that. My plants got so out of control that I couldn't see any of my shrimp. I pulled most of the plants out and now have a small patch of moss and a small piece of driftwood.

Get a Marineland sponge pre-filter and tighten it with zip ties. It doesn't have to be a perfect fit. I think it is only 6 bucks or so.

No, I would always use sponges before stainless. You get extra biological filtration from the sponges as a bonus. Plus, you still have the risk of a shrimp getting stuck to the stainless steel mesh.

Your pH should stay stable until your Amazonia soil is exhausted a year or two in the future if you use GH+ with RO water. No need to add KH to the water for CRS or TB.
