The most important parameters in any shrimp tank are GH and KH. These two measurements will directly affect the Ph in an aquarium and what types of fish or shrimp you will be able to keep. GH stands for general hardness and this measurement can be raised by using a product called Salty Shrimp GH+. KH stands for carbonate hardness and you can raise this measurement with Salty Shrimp GH and KH+. KH is what directly influences the stability of Ph in an aquarium so for soft water shrimp it is import to keep KH under 3.
Definitely a need for any shrimp keeper!
Shimp arrived alive and the GH & KH will take time to get formaler with.
I thought the source water I was using was good. Until i added cherry shrimp to one tank and noticed molting problems almost immediately. This test kit provided the insight needed to make the proper adjustments to water quality. Now my shrimp are thriving! The fish seem happy with changes as well, especially the corys. Will definitely continue to use this product!
I really enjoy being able to accurately know my water parameters and if your in the same boat, I highly recommend this product.
