Hi all,

I am just curious if my water would be suitable to keep cherry shrimp healthily with a GH of 8 and a KH of 15?

Are these parameters too high? Is anyone keeping them in similar water parameters?

GH is good, not sure about KH. I have about GH8, KH7. Are these tap or tank water values? If tap, the KH in tank could be lower if you have active soil.

You should be ok, id do a long drip acclimatisation, maybe only buy a few to start with to see how they get on and for your peace of mind as well

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Those results are tank water, the KH from the tap reads 20 but the testing is done using test strips so not very accurate to begin with. I will take your advice and try just a few with a long acclimatisation.
