There isn't much to report on this at the moment, I am 50/50 as to whether this is going to work or not long term. I have seen 2 dead shrimp since adding the new ones and counted about half of the new shrimp bought, that I saw yesterday! This is going to be a long term experiment I guess, the best I hope will happen at this point is that the remaining shrimp survive and reproduce and that new borns born in the tank should be more suited to the environment/water etc.
There is an element of the acclimating didn't go as well/to plan as it should with my knowledge/experience, but I did the best I could, so that is what it is!
The pH of drinking water is very important and should be between 6.2 and 8.5, with a domestic ro system the alkalinity level varies depending on location, but may vary from 80 to 400 ppm (mg/L). Although domestic ro systems are great for removing contaminants that have low solubility at high temperatures, they are not good at removing dissolved metals or organic chemicals which have high solubility in water. Another interesting tip is that domestic ro system filters should be changed on a regular basis, some domestic ro systems have cartridges that need to be replaced every 3 months, while some domestic ro systems can last up to 6 months.
