Hi guys I want to get a few Amano shrimps for my planted community tank. My tankis 75 gallon, temp is 80F, CO2 injected, pH 6.2, KH3.0, GH 4.0

Will a shrimp be ok with these parameters? I dont want them to decalcify or anything.

Also they will be kept with blue rams and rummynose tetras.

thanks for the help!

Amano shrimp will be fine in anything but molten lava.

Amano shrimp can hold their own against everything and everyone but the most interesting man in the world.

In short Adam, they'll be fine :D

You'll enjoy seeing them clean your tank.

Though your pH may be slightly lower than preferred, I think you'll be ok ...just be sure the parameters don't change wildly.

cool thanks. I might increase KH and adjust my CO2 to get a final pH of 6.5. if that will be more comfortable for them.

Also I read an article about dosing Iodide to help with molting, is this necessary?
