    No, because you would never be able to clean it out.
  5. I don't think most people measure GH or KH in parts per million, I think your results would be KH 0-1 and GH 3-4. You don't need to remember the colour the drops should change too, as, as you say the colour in the test tube should match the original drops colour to get your reading. You may need to get some GH/KH+ for cherry/neocaridina shrimp, as your results are nearer caridina shrimp parameters. Cherry shrimp though are a lot tougher than bee shrimps so they may even survive in the parameters you have but not do as well? Anyway, if you are still cycling you can come back to that nearer the time that is done. The best shrimps to get are juveniles as you know you will have them longer (you can't tell how old an adult is) and they are better suited to adapting to new water parameters etc. You may find the below video interesting and useful as it covers virtually all you need to know at the start:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pO6iJPbmdk Simon

    shrimp food covered in slime or mold

    HI Welcome to SKFA. Are your shrimps eating the crab cuisine at all? I don't blame them if they are not eating it. There are much better alternatives out there. Crabs will eat any junk, but shrimps are a lot pickier in their choice of food. Have a read of the numerous choices in the "Food & Nutrition" subforum. And remember, you don't have to limit yourself (and the shrimps) to processed foods. Look at leaves, flowers, vegetable off cuts or even frozen bloodworms.

    White tiny substance in Shrimp aquarium bed

    My photos were below 500kb so you may still be a bit large???? Thats only a guess though!!! A real stab in the dark but if it is a recently set up tank, it may be fungus, that isnt a rare occurance with new tanks. There is a photo on this recent post if that helps?

  19. One full day might not be enough, if the parameters are very different. Use your TDS meter as the guide, not the clock.

    PH at CO2 peak at 5.4 too low for CRS?

    Neocaridina davidi - Colour Variations

    I know how old this thread is, I got here with a Google search for "blue shrimp lose their color " which has happened to me at least a half dozen times- they literally molt into natural brown and gray. Anyone solve this mystery in the last few years? Anyway on this topic, the general consensus of the general aquarist with other species bred for minute color variations is to label them with a batch number which acts almost like a sku... so for example on something like a cichlid or pleco you get the morph name followed by a number indicating the last few generations. Example "green dragon pleco 242" which tells us the breeding stock on both sides and can be used to ID at least the morphs going back to the point where they split from another subtype/name.
