    Over here snow is a rare thing. And I don't think it's the snow that's bad for old cars but rather the copious amounts of salt used on the roads.

    I used to know a classic car restorer. When he...

    While a pH of 6.6 is low enough to affect the cycle negatively it is a value that would make a lot of commonly kept species extremely happy.

    No.

    Quite a few fish see their world as things to
    - eat
    - mate with
    - chase away
    - others

    So if they are not in a mating mood they'll ignore or chase other fish.

    Keep the filter media submerged. Store the live stock in a container with lid. Take some water at least if you need to add new water treat it with conditioner and let it trickle in.

    I'd put the shrimp on hold until the plants have grown some.

    Don't forget that it's not a mammal and has different social needs than us.
