Re: Amano shrimp, air/tank CO2, etc.
Thank you all for the great advice. I think I'll get a couple of
yamato shrimp to start with. I'll also do a partial water change - the
tank is due anyway. This time I won't add any buffer and I'll adjust
the CO2 to the pH I desire (6.5 - 6.8).
Michael's hypothesis about air/tank CO2 eq'b sounds more probable than
mine. It makes sense that with a higher O2 concentration in the water,
the plants will pearl that much quicker.
I can't remove all of the fish, but I can move some. This should also
help keep CO2 levels lower - less respiration at night (of course fish
respire during the day too, but CO2 levels at night are what I'm worried
Thanks for the advice
