Would it be better to feed less of these foods if you are trying to improve the strength of the line?

I got one from Bunnings but the shelves are made of wood but metal framed. Have to have two small racks BC it was missing the joining pieces too. What shelves does everyone use or recommend?

For 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. ;)

Tds of 600-800.... What suburb you in? Here in Enfield mines 250-260

Got a big Hamburg-matten sponge filter in one tank and I'm using those double sponge filters in all my others. Except my guppy pond.. that just gets the Bob standard single one

Tva351 that's how I've been using  mironeukton powder, but where is the best place to get glasgarten products. Only ones I've seen are over seas on eBay. Is there an Aussie or NZ supplier?

Filters - Water / Experience with Hamburg Matten Filter

Hey guys, I have set up a Hamburg Matten filter in my upsized Sunkist neo tank. What are people's experience with these and if so were there many cons

The absolute best food to feed your shrimp is Bacter AE. It is basically biofilm in a bottle. Best food to increase the survival rate of shrimplets without a doubt. I use it religiously 3 times a week. Do not feed as much as they say on the bottle. I feed half of what is recommended on the bottle. On the other days I just feed "solid" foods (dried spinach, shrimp king pellet food, soya husks, etc).
I hope this advice helps not only newcomers but also experienced shrimp keepers aswell. Happy Shrimpin'.

Anyone have a reliable Australia supplier of BacterAE?
