In a few easy steps, we are going to show you how we set up our tanks.
You don't need extravagant supplies or equipment.
All you need is:
Minimum 10 gallon tank
gH Remineralizer Bacteria Product TDS Pen Moss/Plant Last, but not least patience
Below is an attached picture of how the tank starts when we first set it up.
Here we have a thin layer of ADA soil clumped up as we did not spread it
On top is a bacteria product we use called Dead Shrimp Powder from a Taiwan breeder
For a 10 gallon tank, we would use around a table spoon of Dead Shrimp Powder on top of the soil
After this is all set in place, fill up the tank with RO water
Remineralize the water immediately to 100 tds and turn on your sponge filter
Let the tank run for 14 days
On day 14, do a 50% water change and refill the tank with RO water and remineralize the tank back to 100 tds
After all this, shrimps can be put in
Our tank parameters
TDS 90-110 pH 5.5-6.5 gH 3-4 kH 0
As always, happy shrimpin'.
