I don't have a PH, GH or KH checking kit.
Temp: 26 degrees celsius
Size: 12 gallons (or did you want dimensions?)
Fauna: Anubias, Java Fern, Hygrophila, Eleocharis, Dwarf Hairgrass and a random bushy thing which didn't have a name at the LFS. It's on the right hand side of my tank.

Is this information any help at all?

However, I will take your list to my LFS and buy all the kits in order to check those params.

Appreciate your reply.

I know this is an old thread... but are any of you keeping any sulawesi shrimp (not malawas) in water between 68 and 72 degrees F? I want to try my hand as all my other params are great but I'm worried that if I increase the temp my neocaridina will get bacterial infections, is there a happy medium?

No, sulawesi lake shrimp need a temp above 78, otherwise they die.

I keep mine above 80 so they'll breed readily.
