      Hi  has anyone found a trusted method of using fertilizers in planted tanks that require heavy dosing without raising TDS to extream levels. I am finding single doses of micro's or macro's could tip TDS value into the mid to high 300's.  Before I got shrimp I had a religious dosing routine which followed the Tom Barr method of heavy dosing of macros and micros for every day for 6 days and major water change on day 7 to reset your parameters.  The seachem Aquavitro range I found to be the best and have had great success in growing great looking plants, but has its fall backs like raising TDS to high levels.  I am keen to know how others have found the perfect line of ferts Vs TDS

      I would also highly recommend getting a GH/KH test kit so you can determine if GH/KH was an issue.

      Hi@daimen

      So sorry to hear :-(

      Your temp and tds is ok. Its better to keep the temp at 22-24 if possible though. However short periods upwards of 25 may be ok depending on the genetics of the shrimp and how fragile the line is.

      However a pH much above 7 will slowly kill off softwater caridina shrimps I'm afraid. If nothing else then that would explain the losses.


      Will

      Hi all, I have my CRS dead. Have had them for about 3 or 4 months. Filter was cycled in another tank and added when shrimp arrived. They are in a 20L tank with params 7.5 PH temp 23-25 TDS 143. I dont have KH and GH tests. I use rain water and i add micronection powder to water changes. Any help with finding out what happened Thanks Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
