    Cherry Shrimp Losing Color!

    I have had these rcs for over a week now. Seems like they are happy and are foraging.

I had two super red ones and the rest were...

    The Perfect Tank - Complete Failure With No Plausible Reason

    Okay, let me start by saying I've had a few CO2 planted tanks in the past that have been a great success. I'm very familiar with EI, GH, KH, pH etc... I went on a mission to set up the perfect planted tank and it has been a disaster: 40g GLA Dual stage CO2 Milwaukee pH controller - pH drops...

    Gh Booster Or Salty Shrimp Gh+

    I'm currently using nilocg's GH booster but would like to switch to salty shrimp GH+ as I plan to keep some CRS. It's a heavily planted high tech CO2 tank. Would using salty shrimp be detrimental to my plant growth?

    Cherry Shrimps And Crystal Shrimps W/ Co2

    So the story is I used to have a high tech 55g and thought it was too much maintenance so I converted it to a low tech shrimp tank housing both cherries and crystals. Missed high tech so I slowly converted it back to high tech. Started to adapt the shrimps to CO2, 1bps the first day up to 2bps...
