I don't think putting the coral in the tank was a great idea. Keep a very close eye on your water parameters.

Your right it wouldn't work here, but then nothing they do would work here. The whole street is lined with fish shops and all the tanks are way way overcrowded yet they're all as healthy as can be.

I don't think a little bit like that will do much, but I will keep an eye on the parameters just in case. The shrimp certainly love it, although it probably helped that it had a small amount of algae on it.

Shrimp like tasting everything you put in the tank!

They like tasting it alright, I put in a Cherry tank as well and they're all over it. I usually use it for Bristlenose and Tropheus but these things like it even more.

Well you were right the parameters have changed, but for the better.

PH 6.2 was 6.0

GH 100 was 40

KH <10 was <10

I've taken the coral out for the time being and I'll check the parameters again tomorrow. Anyway in the meantime the Shrimpies have had a good feed and the GH is a bit better for them, not a bad result.

      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!

      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?
