Looking for some advice! (hope this is in the right place couldn't find anything shrimp specific) I am looking at buying some blue dreams within the next month. Now you (and a few others) say not to use the fluval plant and shrimp stratum for cherries/blue dreams. The LFS that I'm getting my shrimp on are using in all their shrimp tanks and they seem to be having a fair bit of success (I saw lots of shrimplets in all of their tanks especially the crystals tanks) and they ended up selling me some of it. I'm about 2 weeks into my cycle. Should I get rid of the substrate or keep it because the shrimp I'm getting are accustomed to the lower PH? Any feedback would be great, cheers!
