    I need help with my test results

    Well the tanks empty. But I had a basic test kit for Ammonia/Nitrite/Nitrate. To be honest, I'm just trying to do some detective work. I was such a gut punch when everything started dying. Having to just save what I could and quit. That ships sailed now and it's really put me off keeping fish...

    I need help with my test results

    To be honest, I really can't remember. I know I still have a bottle of Prime...I *think* I used it.

    I need help with my test results

    It's been awhile, but I think I was using Salty Shrimp GH/KH+ on the RO water. The tank had been running for 5 months when the problem happened.

    Best way to help my moss spread

    Bugger, I didn't know that. Do you think it would be worth getting another type of moss to spread over the wood?

    Best way to help my moss spread

    I have some Taxiphyllum Flame. I started the tank around mid September, tying the moss to the top of the wood and it's done rather well. It's become quite the safe haven for my shrimp, I've found multiple molts inside. I was hoping it would spread downwards though. Will this happen in time...

    Time for a trim?

    Had a bit of a trim, hope I didn't got too over the top. I planted some of the bits I cut, also nipping the tops off them. Had a real problem with my cheery shrimp, they wouldn't leave me or my scissors alone!

    Time for a trim?

    My Rotala 'Vietnam H'ra' is getting a lil tall now. I've heard that when you cut the plant, it spouts 2 stems at the cut point so gives a bushier look. Roughly how low would you suggest cutting these plants? Also, can you plant the cut parts? Tanks under 2 months old.

    Need a new PH meter.

    My current PH meter has died, after just over a months use (came free with my TDS meter). Can anyone recommend a replacement, preferable something that comes with the power for calibrating. So many different 1's on Amazon with varying reviews.

    PH has dropped, KH is 0

    What about my PH? My RO waters PH is 5.3, will the soil raise it?

    PH has dropped, KH is 0

    Did a 50% water change on Sunday and turned my CO2 back on today, had it on really low. CO2 had been off for a few days to let my shrimp acclimitise. Tested my PH and it's dropped down to 5.7, KH is 0, GH is 6. Not sure what's gone on, I did my normal water change, RO water with Salty Shrimp...

    Active substrate and KH

    Am I doing any damage by adding KH? I really want my PH to be 6.5 plus. Before hand it was 5.8
