Hi Tom,

did you ever do some research on high PO4 loads (say >4-5ppm) in the water column and its impact on shrimp health?

I recall you did that with KNO3 dosing. You found for amano shrimp and 3 days of exposure: LD 50% with NO3 100ppm+

What's your experience with high PO4 readings and shrimp health?

Regards,
Detlef

Re: High PO4 impact

No one has every suggested it, nor found much effect on health, same for us.........PO4 is not particularly toxic etc.

I'm sure if you add enough, but it seems like it would take a great deal.
