I just tested the gh & kh in my 5g tank (neocaridina, betta, & snails), as I have been losing shrimp. The API gh/kh test kit showed the kh at 100-200ppm (8 drops), but the gh showed 200-400ppm (15 drops). I know water changes can help, but my tap water is kh 100-200 (6 drops) and gh 100-200 (6 drops). Should I do a 30% water change? Or is my tap water even too off and I should use distilled or something else? Any advice appreciated!
Hi everyone, just needing a little advice ... I have Blue Rili and Snowball Neocaridina. I just got the 10 Snowballs last Thurs, and I know at least 3-4 have died since, but now I can only see 3 at a time. Also, one of my blue rili died since adding the snowballs. I drip acclimated them and aside from 1 dieing the first 24hrs, they seemed fine. They seem happy until there's suddenly another dead one. 😔 Plenty of algae to graze on, temp 78, ph 7.5, kh between 120-180, gh about 180. What am I doing wrong? 😟
