ph - 6.6
ammonia - 0
nitrate - 40
nitrite - 0
phosphate - more than 10
gh - 3
kh - 3

Acclimating, who has time for that? (that was a joke, but yes...i don't do it)

pm'ed Rachel, she said the shrimps can't handle the nitrate, way too high.

So, although my plants are thriving, I think I found the culprit. Going forward, for the mini tank for my son, no more dry ferts..will stick with just root tabs
