Salty Shrimp Mineral GH/KH+

Hey Gang,

Has anyone tried this using a high tech tank, EI ferts, CO2 and BDBS substrate with RO water for CSR shrimp?

Just curious as I am planning to start a CRS tank but also want to try to go high tech.

Thanks!

Clint

That stuff is good. I am using the salty shrimp gh+(no kh) I am using half ro and half tap is why since my tap has enough kh. I would strongly recommend to not do full 30ppm co2 but like 15ppm. Trust me as much as I want to run 30ppm co2 in the CRS tank I have to resist the urge and run about 10-15ppm co2. It is my understanding that most of the time when that much co2 is in the water it isn't that they are not as healthy but they just don't have as much urge to reproduce. So I am giving just a bit of co2, lowered light intensity to prevent algae

That stuff you listed is very good.

I agree with @clownplanted while I do not have a CRS shrimp tank (yet) with my lighting at 40-50par at the substrate I have not noticed a difference in running approx. 15ppm as opposed to 30ppm in growth (I have tried and run about 20 ish ppm just for peace of mind). I would attribute this in large part to my par and to some degree my plants. I would think it would depend mostly on lighting so keeping to med'ish light and med to slow growing plants well suited to a shrimp tank such as mosses. There is probably little need to run more than 15 ppm Co2.
