I've been wondering if I can recycle higher quality WCed water from the high sensitive shrimp tank(s) like TBs to less sensitive ones like many type of Neocaridina or Tigers.

Let's say:

WCed water from CRS and TB tanks with parameters as: PH=6+ GH=5+ KH=<1 and no other level of Nitrite, Nitrate ... etc, to be used to do WC for other shrimps like Neocaridina ... etc. All I need is to add a bit of water supplements to bring PH up to around 7, and TDS up to around 200+ for WC on Neocaridina tank(s). That's exactly what I have to do with R/O water for WC.

1- To save the life of the R/O membrane.
2- To save water: tap water and R/O water at the same time.


What do you think about this concept?

What's wrong with it?

Wrong? Nothing is wrong per say, just depends on your priorities.

Personally I like to add as little as I can to my water.

Neos are tanks and can take a lot. Bacteria in the water from other shrimp may cause challenges though.
