Is Equilibrium safe for Shrimp?

960 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  yoink
I am wanting to raise my Gh and was wanting to know do you think it would be OK to use equilibrium? My tap water has such a high KH, 11 degrees but the GH is only 3 degrees. I also use RO water to get my tank water ph to bout 6.7. To get the ph at 6.7 my GH is barely 2 which I want to be higher for my shrimp, all my shrimp, including sensitive shrimp. Please let me know your opinion.
Thanks :)

I have never used Equilibrium but I don't think it would be necessary if you want to raise GH. May just cause more problems trying to raise GH.

Are your shrimp showing unhealthiness or something?
I use it with shrimp and dwarf crays. All are doing just fine.
