Well what kind of shrimp do you plan on keeping? Are you using RO water? What kind of water parameters are you wanting in the tank? If your not using RO, what is the water like you will be using?
If your just keeping cherries then it wouldnt matter nearly as much as if you had CRS. Or if your using RO water you could just use eco or flourite with the CRS since you wouldnt need the buffering effect of shrimp soils etc....
