Just had my tap water tested and want to know what I should be checking on the test for shrimp? I know different ones have different requirements but need to start with what is important on this test and how to read it for shrimp in general. All info is in mg/L

what did you test your tap for and what readings did you get? each parameter has its own test. if your using strips they are not real good and can give bad readings when the water bleeds from one test pad to the other. most generally people test for

ph
gh
kh
tds
ammo
nitrate
nitrite
