My Tank Parameters

The tank is 100% RO water remineralized with Salty Shrimp Sulawesi Mineral 8.5 according to the directions on the jar. The temp is 81-83F. I have also been using GlasGarten Bacter AE and GlasGarten Betaglucan + Immunglobulin in their tank. The Bacter AE has done an excellent job of creating plenty of biofilm for them. Since they are wild-caught they do not seem interested in prepared foods so biofilm will be the main part of their diet. I also have SL-Aqua Snowflake Food available at all times in their tank and they pick at that frequently as well.
