Yeah too long, even spiderwood with all the thin branches takes a while 75e8931ae37b48a1f15e6ced00dfd2cc.jpg

Another interesting read! Excuse my skulking through old posts here but, did anyone actually try casual experimenting with this thesis?

I tried, but it was too difficult without a multitude of tanks. Each with a different temperature and one control tank. Each tank will have a male and female, with no mixing of babies from the other parents.

I Don't have enough tanks for that. Mine are all occupied with shrimp.

You have obviously identified the issue here which needs fixing. GET MORE TANKS! 😁

      I was talking about letting pure RO water sit around for too long unused.  Try not to do it.
      RO water that has been remineralised is different.

      Oops did I mix them around?   <edit> - I did mix the names around. Fix it now in my post above.

      Ok then. Will add more plants to try and reduce nitrates.  Thanks Simon and JayC for the pointers and hints. I think the Dino Spit is the Glutaraldehyde and the Dino Pee has the macro and micronutrients. I will leave off the Glutaraldehyde and reduce the dose of the Pee to one third. I am pretty careful with the dosing.  Good news is that there are at least two RCS females still in the tank and looking well. Maybe they went and hid and moulded after the big water change? The surviving  DAE are all looking well.  Anyway will take all your advice on board and do smaller water changes and work out a dripper system.

      jayc's comments on letting remineralized water sit around got me thinking.  I've had pre-mixed up batches of water sitting around for a month or more with no obvious growth.  I asked the Salty Shrimp people about this, but unfortunately they replied back to me in German, and google translate doesn't seem to work too well.  So if anybody knows German, here is their reply: " prinzipiell ist es kein Problem dein mit Bee Shrimp GH+ aufgesalzenes
      Osmosewasser zu lagern, jedoch werden dabei einige Spurenelemente
      verloren gehen. Dies hat sich bei unds allerdings noch nicht als negativ
      herausgestellt, da wir selbst meist eine Menge von ca. 1000l aufgesalzen
      parat haben. "
