Duely noted. Ive decided to replace that bowl with a little 3 gallon for some shrimp. Still up in the air as to WHAT shrimp to stock, but if I want to got the CRS route, sand is okay? what is recommended as substrate?

As for low PH and low temp, I the water temp can be a little lower thanks to blasting the AC and fan in my room the water temp probably gets low 70s. As for the pH would it be safe to use like, sachem discus buffer?

Current Fish tanks:
20 Gallon SE Asian biotope?: 8 amano shrimp, 1 Gold Gourami, 6 Panda Corys
10 gallon: 3 Female Bettas, 3 nerite snails, 4 Emerald Green Corys
7 gallon cube: 3 Licorice Gouramis, 1 leftover Dario Hysignon
4 gallon cube: Male Halfmoon Plakat Betta
2.5 Gallon: Male Bumblebee Betta
