1.005 is fine

I have kept mine in salinities from 1.005 up to 1.025 (an initial mistake with buyer--there were some deaths). They act just as happy and vigorous and colorful at 1.005 as at 1.012. Willow moss...

Mine spent most of their time out of the rocks

in anything from a half gallon to a gallon container with never more than a dozen shrimp. I'd say 8-9 always swimming around in the water column or moving across the lava rock. So, I don't think it...
