    Default PH and Red Cherry Shrimp


    0 Not allowed!
    I recently added a few Red Cherry Shrimp in my 10 gallon tank. I would like for them to breed if possible but the PH in my tank doesn't rise above 6.6. Is that too low for them?

    Thanks, it did help. My PH may be too low but we'll see as I may need to try and raise it a little for my fish. It keeps dropping

    also...the fish in your tank may eat the little shimp once they are born....is the tank planted?? if it is really well planted then the chances of them surviving are very high.

    good luck.

    I do have plants in my tank but it's not heavily planted. Hopefully it has enough plants in there to keep any baby shrimp alive if we ever have any.

    Lots of java moss! They need places to hide even the adults after molting need a place to hide.

    The ph in my tanks is 7, I think hiding places are the most important

    Guess I need to get some java moss but I have heard that it can get pretty out of control in your tank. Is that true?

    I have moss walls, moss rocks, clumps stuffed behind sponge filters, etc. I never never felt it was out of control. Just like any plant it needs an occasional trim.

    I really like the mosses, I have java,weeping, Taiwan, and my favorite fissiden.

    I do have three rocks in my tank. I could attach some moss to one of them to see how it goes.
