Description: Bee-Shrimp Mineral GH+ has especially been developed for the keeping and breeding of Caridina Shrimp in an aquarium, to mineralise RO water, rainwater, fully desalinated water etc. It raises the TDS and GH without significantly influencing the carbonate hardness (KH). This is especially important for Caridina shrimp which originate from softwater habitats (ratio of KH/°dH: 0.06/1.0).
Bee-Shrimp Mineral GH+ contains all the important minerals and trace elements your shrimp need for their well-being, an intensive colouration, successful breeding and healthy growth. It also furthers plant growth and the microbial regeneration of biological filter substrates. The danger of noxious bacteria is reduced, as these salts especially further the growth of antagonistic (beneficial) microflora.
Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+ does not influence the pH directly.
For keeping and breeding bee shrimp, aim for a pH of under 7. As soon as biological biodegradation processes start in your tank this may happen all by itself. However, if the pH remains higher, the low carbonate hardness (KH) enables you to influence the pH very easily, e.g. by the use of black alder cones or peat (both containing fulvic acids), or with pH-reducing additives.
Instructions: Bee Shrimp GH+ can be used in one of two ways:
- By following the manufacturer's directions and adding 1 full measuring spoon (provided) per 20l of RO water to achieve a water hardness suitable for bee shrimp
- AquaLabs recommends using a TDS meter to determine the Total Dissolved Solids in your aquarium. During waterchanges, Bee Shrimp GH+ can be added and mixed into the water change bucket to achieve the desired TDS. A TDS meter can be used throughout this process to ensure the appropriate TDS is achieved.
