Borneowild Humic

Hi,

I have only a 3 gallon tank housing fire reds.
I intend to add in crystal reds but my ph is currently in the high 7s almost 8.

I want to add some borneowild humic but I am wondering what is the rate of change?
Lets say I have a ph of 8, humic is supposed to bring down to 6.5 or so, how fast will that drop be? Will it be fatal?

This is not a viable method (by itself atleast) of obtaining a lower pH. You need to have an understanding of your water parameters: TDS, GH, and KH and get a remineralizer. Without a buffering substrate it is very challenging to maintain the stability needed for these shrimp, especially in a tank as small as 3 gallons. On another note, your neocardinia will survive but likely struggle in the best parameters for crystal reds unless you have an exceptional strain of either that can tolerate parameters closer to middle ground
