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.

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.
