Main concern is nutrient imbalances, infestations of various algae that can result from that, dead shrimp.. not necessarily in that order. If these go the direction I'm intending, I'd like to try my luck with more fragile tigers (supers in one, OEBTs in the other) in addition to the Neos that will go in first. At a 2-3 KH, it really should be doable, but I've managed to kill a few tigers in other tanks either via acclimation or other human error. Just feels fundamentally wrong dumping fertilizer salts into a Caridina tank to begin with and I figured that a leaner dosage should be safer. And since there is no way to realistically determine what is being used by the plants, I'm hoping to come up with a recipe that would provide enough to avoid any real deficiency but would take a long time of daily dosing to throw anything too out of whack. Am I overthinking this?
Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
