So I'm all ready, my tank has hiding spots. Ammonia and nitrites are under control. And I'm sure my tank is fully cycled, it's been up for 6 weeks now.
The seller ships on Monday, so they should come on Tuesday. He only lives 5 hours from me. DOAs won't be a problem. So now I'm done to my last 2 questions. First, will ph swings harm shrimp? I can't test my ph right now, I'm out of drops. But my DIY 2 liter co2 has been set up for a few days now. The bubbles are getting chopped up into a powerhead, so I'm pretty sure the ph will drop, and since my tap is usually at 8.2, will this harm my shrimp? And second, what is the proper way to acclimate RCS?
