I am putting my GH/KH and TDS down here more to keep a journal of these numbers ( sorry, dont want to bore you to tears) for this tank as I try to adjust them to suit both the Babaulti and wild neo's.
There appears to be not as many neo's in here at this point as there are Babaulti. Which is odd, because I put 10 Babaulti and 30 wild neos in here to begin with. Im thinking it may be because the KH/GH has been too low for the neo's to thrive. I used the Salty Shrimp KH/GH remineralizer on this tank the last time I did a water change ( I thought I had used equilibrium, but I had made a note of it that I had used the Salty Shrimp KH/GH.)
In all my tanks the KH has been at 1-- very low and concerning, but I never have any problems with my fish because of it. But, shrimp, that could be a different story. So, the last time I added the Salty Shrimp I didn't know what I was doing- did it improperly. No big surprise there.
So, this time when I change my water I will make the water from my water change KH 3 and GH 6. Hopefully this will make the neo's rebound.
