    Hi p0ip0i,
    May I know where did you get your top yellow shrimp from? And is this possible to keep them with RCS?

    yellow and rcs shrimp will interbreed, cause they are just different colors of the same shrimp species.

    i think the offspring will be some red, some yellow and some other color, not too sure thou as i've never tried before

    For Neo caridina I don't think u should use distilled water.. and it's always best to add few drops of anti chlorine to the water you add..
    u need to maintain 150-250 tds for neos

    my tank tds is 114

    I'm using tap water with anti chlorine.

    I checked the tap water tds and realise it is actually pretty low at 74.

    thus I had started adding minerals rocks to the tank to buff up the tds and gh in tank. to elevate the molting problems in my fire red tank

    I use both in my nano shrimp tank. In the simplest term I can explain (if I understood it correctly), BorneoWild Enlive is like a starter beneficial bacteria and BorneoWild Bee Ball cleans your tank water and releases minerals for the shrimps.

    Enlive is a multi-purpose culture of more than 100 types of bacterial in dormant state. It helps to seed a new tank substrate system quickly as well as in new filters when dosed into water directly. It replenishes bacterial losses after a regular water change, purifies water by decomposing ammonia and nitrite.
    Bee Ball is a ceramic ball made of Bamboo Charcoal that slow releases anions and minerals. The negatively charged parameter creates refreshing natural environment that vitalises metabolism and bacterium activities. It strengthens immune system of shrimp over time, as well as removes odor and impurities thus improving water quality. The Calcium based mineral also aid in moulting, color and shell enhancement.
    Both quotes mentioned above is taken from BorneoWild website under Essential Minerals.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for visiting my website, ahungrypolarbear. I'm glad you found it helpful.

    I got started with a shrimp tank all because of this very same thread by p0ip0i.

    Good luck with your new shrimp tank!
