Should I start with CRS or RCS ?
Seattleshrimp posted a topic in General Questions/DiscussionsHi ! I live in Seattle where the water is incredibly soft and I have a tap water pH of 6.7, GH of 0-1 and KH 2. My existing tank with plants already has buffered substrate. Would I have better chance of keeping CRS than RCS with my current water parameters ? Or would RCS do okay? I do have an RO system already, and I could remineralize my water with salty shrimp KH/GH+. Which would allow my GH and KH parameter to be okay for neocaridinas, but I already have a tank with active substrate. I’m 100% I don’t have space to set up another tank with inert substrate. Would do you recommend ? What are pH you have successfully kept neocaridinas and have them thriving ? Thanks ! I appreciate all the help as I am new to the hobby.
Stocking my aquarium
Aquahobby posted a topic in General Questions/DiscussionsHey guyz, im cycling a 30l tank to get some rcs in it. The tank is almost cycled and im thinking of getting them next week. I have tested the water and the kH is at 9 and ph is 7 (i have yet to buy a gh test as i bought the jbl pack and didnt realise it does not include gh). I have read about parameter for neo carodina and they say that the hardier the water the better. But i have also read that the water can be too hard which will make it hard for them to molt. What would you recommend for the parameters ? And how much should i start as a basic colony?

Shrimp Aquascape with Seiryu/Ryouh
inkevnito posted a topic in General Questions/DiscussionsHi all, Not sure which category this would fall under but, i am planning on doing an aquascape with seiryu/ryouh stone for CRS/CBS. I have read that these stones will raise pH levels. I have a tank already for FISH with seiryu/ryouh and the ph is 7.6+ Should i be safe and avoid using these stones overall and just stick to driftwoods and mosses? Thanks, Kevin. Also, If it helps.. i will be using cal aqua labs substrate.

Very active shrimps
Matuva posted a topic in General Questions/DiscussionsYesterday evening, I put the rest of my tangerine tigers & blue velvet in a new tank. This tank has been cycled during 5 weeks, and after check, NO2 and NO3 are at 0 or not even noticeable by the API test. Other parameters are : PH: 6.8 KH: 4, GH: 6 TDS: 110 Water temp: 26°C I acclimatate the shrimps during 6 hours. Once I put them in their new tank, they start swimming all around, explore everywhere, and continue swimming all around, very actively. I check this morning, and I found them still swimming all around... They were very quiet in the old tank. Should I be worried about anything else?
