Shrimp-safe GH booster.

I'm running out of Nutrafin African Cichlid Conditioner, as it's no longer manufactured.

There are a lot of GH boosters out there, and I'm not clear which one I should choose. After hours of searching and reading, I've burned out from information overload.

I have soft San Francisco water, and I just need to boost the GH 1 or 2 degrees.

I've widdled it down to these possibilities:
1) NilocG's liquid GH Booster
2) GLA's Ultimate GH Booster
3) Salty Shrimp Bee Shrimp GH+
4) Make my own mix (which I'm hesitant to do, only because different granule sizes can throw off the ratios).

What do you recommend?

I've used 1) and 3) and prefer 3) due to it works great, dissolves easy and adds less TDS to do the job

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

If you're buying shrimp-specific minerals? Salty Shrimp.

If you just want to increase GH? 1 & 2 are the same thing - one of them is just cheaper and has cheaper shipping options. (Go with the cheaper option)
