Brad, I'm not sure, but it helped my snails. I need to put it in my other shrimp tank to see what happens. Vaultboy, I got it from mordalphus, but I don't know if he ships internationally. Send him a pm. Also, I have seen it in health stores and ebay, but I don't know how it compares.

It will help our your nerites and CRS to an extent. Overall, nerites are coming from hard water, and putting them in our soft planted tanks will be a little harsh on their shells... It definitely helps, but wont stop the problem completely. As far as CRS are concerned, it's a great tool to help their white coloration stay strong, and will help keep the water very clean and polished for them

And yes, I ship internationally

Brad, pm him or click on his links for details. I don't remember.

Anyway, here is a tank without (pitting, breaks):


And with (no pitting, breaks):


That's all she wrote.

About how big is a 0.12 scoop?

I have a 5 g tank. Should I start with a pinhead?

It's tiny, about the smallest size scoop on your EI dosing spoons if you have those, or a small pinch (like a small pinch of salt)

unless you have extremely large man hands, a pinch will do
