      I'm probably the wrong one to answer this???? Do as JayC stated and only use half dose every 2 days of the fluval cycle. I believe you only need to do a water change if the ammonia goes too high (so remove some ammonia)! I imagine that that product does add ammonia as that is the start of the cycle? The other reason for doing a water change is if the PH drops too low (below 6.5ish) but I doubt this is likely with your high PH reading, at this point anyway! Soil substrates usually lower/buffer the PH but I assume you are using sand or gravel, which is usual with cherry shrimp?  The Indian almond leaves and driftwood should very slowly reduce the PH, though the driftwood isn't yet in the tank of coarse! Hopefully the tank will have already cycled by the time the driftwood is ready to  go in the tank anyway. Simon

      Hi guys thank you for your help.    So i will add the driftwood to lower PH, and add fluval cycle once every 2 days with shrimp in aquarium. Should I do frequent 10-25% water changes if ammonia gets higher from the fluval cycle? I think I might of read somewhere that it will raise the ammonia. Best, Brandon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      As long as the shrimps are active and healthy looking then I think you are ok for now and just carry on trying to 'cycle' as per JayC recommended. There isn't much more you can do without ALL the parameters anyway. Even the strip ones are better than none! But at this point if the shrimp look healthy and active you don't need to stress, just enjoy watching them doing their thing! It would be interesting to know more about the tank and setup if you have time? Simon
    • Crabby
      Okay, great. Yes, it will, so do this. Soak first though in dechlorinated water (warm or boiling if possible) like Simon suggested, to remove any nasties.    They're okay, but we do want to be slowly fixing them. Step one is driftwood for pH, step two is cycling the aquarium for Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate.    If you can, please purchase one. There is a good one made by API, quite cheap, will last a while and easy to use/read. This is very important to shrimp. Here it is from aquarium co-op: https://www.aquariumcoop.com/products/api-gh-kh-test-kit-combo
