TDS up is something that I'd be interested in knowing about as well. Hype is sometimes better than reality, but if it works then I'd definitely be interested.

Will do, hopefully it works as advertised. Will let you both know next weekend I guess. Just seen I have 2 berried supreme reds now too! After almost 3 months they are getting going. Apparently the males in my tank did something right this valentines day :-)

Checked the tank before bed last night and the boys were a dancin'. Looked this morning and 2 more oebt's are berried! I can't believe these guys, Barry Manilow? playing 24/7 in that tank right now it would seem. Chances are getting better and better of me getting some babies to survive. Strictly out of numbers haha, love these shrimp!

Got the tds up today. Did a single gallon water change as I didn't want to mess with things to bad with the ladies in there. It did work as advertised! Weirdest stuff ever, looks and smells just like brown sugar, does not taste like it, I had to try lol. I was able to bring the water from like 140 to 170 with just the littlest pieces. I also checked the gh and it remained at 5. Ill snap some pics of it tomorrow.
