Cherry Shrimp Ph

My ph is at 7.4, which Is I think too high for Cherry shrimp, does anyone know if they can survive, they are looking kinda slow lately and I cant get my ph down.. Its pretty hard to do in a 1.5 gallon tank!

the pH is fine and i personally would mess with it. they actual like it alittle higher. they dont do well with ammonia, nitrite or high nitrate readings so perhaps perform a small water change, which wouldnt hurt.
seems like everytime i water change i see more of the shrimp out and about then prior.

Nothing wrong with your pH. It's the KH you should be looking into. Crushed corals should increase both.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

ok, thanks! I did a 25% water change, and I bought a half a pound of crushed coral that I mixed in with the sand.. I'll have updates on their health 2mro! thanks!

I would like to get some RCS myself. What KH is best for them? Thanks.

There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore....
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past.
There is a reason they didn't make it to your future.
