I have seen a sexing guide but the differences were more subtle than with most other Caridina.

How many did you start off with in the hope of having both males and females?

Thanks for that, I think we'll start with ten to hedge our bets, in saying that we do this with our fish as well and at times we've had plenty of males for sale however everyone always needs females.

      No problem. Love helping others if I can. Report back in a week or so. You should test TDS every day around the same time, to keep a track of any changes.

      Sounds good Jay. Thanks a lot I appreciate all of you

      It sounds about right for GH6 (6 drops is roughly 120 TDS). Those GH test kits are not the most accurate. And RO water reading of 3 is not unreasonable. I don't know why you would have been reading 240TDS last week and now it's a 100 points lower. I would suggest, not changing water parameter with a water change for a week, then see where it is at. Change if it gets close to 200 (say around 180-190). Let's give the tank some stability by not changing anything for a while.

      I checked my TDS meter and it reads 3 on RO water and today my TDS in my tank is 133. I did a test with API and it took 6 drops so that's around 100 TDS.  I had 2 adolescents die overnight.  Should I only change water when it's over 200 TDS or should i continue with the 10% every week?  Thanks
