    Crystal Red Water Conditions RO+Tap

    I am looking at getting back into the hobby and wanted to setup a Crystal Red shrimp tank (15 gallon planted). Wanted to see if what water setups people use for their crystal reds or other shrimp. There is a store near my house that sells RO water so I was planning on either mixing RO with tap or treating RO with some type of GH/KH booster.

    How is everyone else mixing or treating their RO water for their shrimp?

    Thanks

    I, personally, have amazing tap water, coming out of big bear lake (while it is still there), so my neos and caridina, i just did treated tap with ro top off.

    But, it is best to buy exactly the same water from your fish store which they use, and then very slowly adjust over the course of several weeks to your tap/ro.

    There is another thread from a user in BP who had an identical curiosity about a week ago,for reference. (i am on a phone, so it is a bit more difficult to link, right now).



    *edit : added link, and i stand corrected. Capistrano.
