Molts galore


About 10 days ago I changed my yellow neo / CRS tank substrate to fluval shrimp stratum and used RO water this past weekend for my water change. My kh is down to 2 and gh is 6. Ph is down to 6.6. Yesterday after feeding them mosura spinach from h4n (thanks again Han), I came home to at least 10 molts in the tank. I guess the shrimp are feeling at home. Now the waiting game begins. I want to thank everyone that gave me advice on my tank.

Keep up the good work. Big water condition changes will cause molts like that.

Glad to hear about someone else changing over to Fluval Stratum with their shrimp as I purchased a large bag and preparing to move my CRS over to a 20gal with it. Any one have any additional advice before making the switch over? I use DI water but the PH is still high. I figured it is the CarabSea substrate that they are currently on.

Water perimeters:
PH 7.6
Gh 7
Kh 5
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
