I have heard, seen, read abt.so many versions how to change water in a shrimps tank that I dont know what is the correct way to change water in a shrimp tank!!!
Can u hobbyists explain how to change water in a shrimp tank eg.CRS tank.
I check the water parameters i.e.TDS, PH, GH ,KH take the RO add the Mineral liquid to raise GH n TDS, add tap water to get the as near as possible to the tank parameters n change te water by drip mehtod it takes me 3.5-4 hrs to change 4 litres i.e. 15% tank water every week. My tank temp. lowers by 0.3-0.4 degrees later on rises to the temp. before water change.
Is this the corret way because I have to check the Water Paramters many times till I get to close to the tank parameters.
The disadvantage in this way is that it takes a lot of time n energy i.e.checking the tank for temp. n odd behavior of shrimps while the water is dripping, also I have to check the water parameters many times till I come close to the tank parameters

im a shrimp breeder. i grow them in my moss tank. i change 50-60% water every week. all you have to do is just tie a micro net on the suction side of the pipe. dont worry about temp and other stuff. its not saltwater.
