  8. Your PH seems a bit high. Here are the "standard" water parameters for the red cherries, though, they are very hardy and can afford a wide range of water parameters. pH – 6.4-7.5 gH – 5-11 kH – 1-5 TDS – 100-300 Temperature – 18-26C or 64 – 80F A black substrate is a good choice for the red cherries. I have them in a tank with inert black quartz, same for my orange, and they display very nicely that way. As for the plants, some ferns, bucephalandra and carpet plants such as the Glosso, Cuba, will add a lot.
  9. white bloom ?

    White bloom is usually bacterial bloom. I'm especially enclined to diagnose that, considering this happened just after you added some Bacter AE. I don't think this is something crtical, but I understand it can be annoying. Try again a partial water change. If you can, vaccuum the substrate, add Mosura BT-9 if you can find some, or live bacterias such as Bio Nitrivec. This problem can clear itself after a more or less long time. In my case, it took 2 weeks in one of my tanks. In another tank, I had to use an UV filter. my .02

  20. Shrimp in Planted Tanks

    Correct. Water softeners remove Calcium and Magnesium by replacing it with sodium. Too much sodium is not good for aquariums. Trace elements are optional, and only a very small amount is required. So if you already have some, this can be added. If not, leave it out. Yes! The RO filter has removed most minerals, metals, dissolved solids, fertilizers, pesticides, fluoride, chlorine, etc - all the stuff that is added to our tapwater, for better or worse. The primary focus is on re-adding the correct amount of Calcium and Magnesium back into the RO water for your aquarium inhabitants., without all the other unwanted chemicals and minerals. Read the pinned threads in Water Parameter. https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forum/93-water-parameters/ You can buy premixed remineralising products like Salty Shrimp GH+ products, Glasgarten Liquid Mineral GH+, Mosura Mineral Plus Ultra, .... Or you can DIY it if you feel like saving some money - I have a thread on it in Water Parameters too.
