But I’ve been doing w/c‘s with a mix of tap water and rainwater to lower TDS which is now 125
That is really interesting. I've seen reports of them breeding, but always in very soft water, so I was expecting the same as @Wookii.That's a great result getting them to breed, I would have expected proper blackwater conditions, and a real acid pH would have been required - so that gives me hope for the future!
I intend to do more rainwater w/c to continue to lower TDS and ph
I got them locally a while ago, had to worm them, lost a couple in quarantineLove it,
Where did you get your Sundadanio Axelrodi - neon blue rasbora, I believe these are the only shrimp friendly fish mentioned by the crustahunter himself.
I don't think don't mind that much for living in not so sure about breeding. I tend to use rain water as much as possible so generally keep my tank around the 100 TDS area, rain being a scarcity lately I've been using tap so it's crept up to 200, soon get that back down now the storms are back. When I bought the Chillis the water they were in was in the 300's from MA.It’s a stunning tank! @Steve Buce how big is it? I’m planning a 60 litre tank and wondering about going rainwater so I can keep chillis
