A. cacatuoides might be the ones your looking for in terms of being hardy. I never kept them with ghosts shrimp though. All my other apistos leave the ghosts shrimp alone.

I'm gonna be a smartmouth - how precious can a ghost shrimp be? You can get nice batch of them for $1.00. :hihi: Anyways, get some apistos, they will leave your shrimp alone.

I have 3 pairs and an extra female in my 75g. They are cool with the amano but not ghosts. They live peacefully with my tetras and apistos and the mature ones can tolerate a wide range of PH and KH.

Adding/mixing RO Water

I know some of you use RO water to get softer water.
Question is, what are your methods to get the RO water into your tank? Please include detailed steps as how to do this. I'm sick of LA tap!
