Will Ei dosing kill red cherry shrimp?

My liquid fertilizers are running low and I'm thinking about switching over to mr. Barr's method.

That's a good question, I was wondering this myself. I recently got a starter colony of cherry shrimp and wanted to add them to one of my high tech ten gallons.

No. EI dosing will not kill RCS. I have a RCS tank that gets EI dosing without problems. If you look closely at Tom Barr's tank you'll also see RCS.

Depends on the size of the tank. If it's 10 gallons or above, then no, since the parameters have a much smaller chance to shift.

Make sure to have plenty of plants to take in those nutrients as well. Under planting might exacerbate the situation.

I EI dose on my 20 long with 100+ PFRs and their colony is thriving.

I have done EI dosing on an ADA Mini-S (~3 gallons) with RCS with no problems.
