Will my CRS be alright in a temporary container?
Currently my shrimp tank is going through a mini-cycle and the ammonia is spiking pretty bad. I figured it would be best to pull my crystal reds out until the tank balances itself out again.
For now, I put them in a small container filled with RO water (remineralized with Mosura Mineral Plus to 6GH, 0KH, 150 TDS, PH 6.5ish), a mat of java moss, and a small baggie filled with a very tiny amount of activated charcoal/zeolite. The container is being aerated by an air stone and I have a small fan blowing over the surface of the water to keep temps down.
Provided I monitor ammonia levels and do water changes as necessary, will my shrimp be alright for a week or two?
