Great question dude, I'm interested to know what everyone thinks on this one, I've always thought no cause you take all the stuff that can go off out but I'd love find out for sure :encouragement:

I Fill my 1050ltr water tanks with RO water and they take 30 days to use and it is still good after that time.

i also have a 3000ltr tank filled with RO water for emergency backup that can sit for months without getting used and

still seems to be ok when i use it.

I think the worst thing that could go wrong with it is Contamination if something got into it.

but i would also say the holding container may play a part in how clean it stays also

Theoritically, RO water last forever (no organics = no bacteria). Only contaminants would affect it....

Does the water have to be airated?

Cause I have the water in a stainless steel container airtight.

after speaking with a certain R/O manufacturer, i was told that using food grade plastic is the best for storage in his opinion. like those esky drinking bottles like a coleman.

i guess after all the effort minimising minerals in the water the storage definantely plays a massive part. just be aware of using normal plastic bottles as its a known fact that they leach chems into water within a year of usage.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
