Quote from: tva351 on December 30, 2018, 08:51:10 pmFor my Neo's my water parameters are as follows: Temp: 22-25c Ph: 6.5-7.5 Ammonia: 0 Chlorine: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 0 Kh: 3-10 Gh: 6-8 Tds: 600-800ppm.The tds is very high, but that is straight out of the tap here in Adelaide.All the Neo's I have are locally bred in Adelaide tap water so they are used to solids in the water. My Caridina do not live in hard tap water. I use R/O water for them mixed with Bee Shrimp GH+ for a total tds of 120ppm.Hope this was helpful.
