Now i am not a fan of chemicals or water aditives but i am going to eb away for easter(4-5 days) and i want to make sure my 135L shrimp farm goes on without me.
Main problem is pH that tends to drop slowly but steady(yes yes tanine from that wood that i did boil forever) twards 6 and that i do not like. In 2-3 days it drops about 0.5 and i do not want to come home to a graveyard.
Now the instructions say:
With this unique combination of active ingredients, the new* TetraAqua EasyBalance replicates the refreshing action changing the water.
The new nitrate reduction granules reduce nitrates to permanently low levels, phospgate is also reduced resulting in less unsightly algae.
pH and carbonate hardness stabilizers prevent dramatic reduction in pH, adds vitamins, trace elements and minerals essential for healthy aquariums.
Now the part that made me go Hmmmm! ENSURE that a PERMANENT, sufficient OXYGEN supply is guaranteed.
Now i am against this kind of substances and aditives as it is BUT when they say on the instructions that you need an oxygen supply it makes me even more paranoid about using it.
So, has anyone used this with shrimp? Any side effects? Any problems what so ever?
I am 99.99% sure i do not want to use it but that last 0.01% is telling me i should make sure my pH does not drop while i am gone.
