Capping substrate

Recommended Posts

Munroco

I'm currently using akadama bonsai soil in my crystal tanks. It works great for lowering my PH and is decent for growing plants but I don't like the look of it and I find its really messy as its so light. If I cap it with sand or gravel will it still keep my PH steady? I'm assuming it will but want to check before I do it.

Yes, that will still work with a layer on top.

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
