The gh and kh tests mean exactly that, your kh is 2 and your gh is 4. If they are cherries, those numbers are ok, although a gh of 6-8 is ideal. If they are cardina(crs or cbs) the kh should...

I'm with the be patient crowd. My cherries were slow to breed, now i can't stop them. Do you see saddled females? How many shrimp so you have currently? Do you see good molts and no deaths?
