Post Your Neocardina Water Parameters

Water parameters is very confusing on the Internet. Some say 6.8-7.5 some also say 5.5.-7.5. I wanna know what your parameters are for

Ph: Mine is 6.1

Gh: I think 6

Kh: n/a

Temp: 78

Currently my Blue Dream Shrimps are thriving but I want to see other people parameters.

pH 6.1 is low for neos. Temps are too high too. But I guess if it's working it's working (depends on your definition of thriving)...I've never seen anything that suggests <6 is ok. IMO 6.5 is minimum and up to around 8 is ok. Some get away with less or more. Ideal is around 7.2-7.4.

Mine...

pH 7.8
KH 3
GH 8
TDS 200-ish
Temp 72 degrees
Nitrates <20
