Hi everyone, I have a 75 Gal tank which I used to have a huge colony of cherry shrimp in. That was until I moved to a different location. After moving my shrimp colony shrunk until no one was left. At my old location the tap water had a TDS of 180, but my new location the tap water TDS reads 40. So I pretty much get distilled water out of the tap. I believe this is the reason my shrimp disappeared. I want to start growing shrimp again in my tank and I understand that I need to remineralize my water for shrimp to thrive. But the Gh/Kh booster can get quite pricey considering the size of my tank, I will need a lot of it. So I'm thinking that buying the salts separately and mixing my own booster would be cheaper but I don't know exactly how to do it. Any help or suggestion is appreciated.
