Shrimp Mineral GH/KH+ has been especially designed for the preparation of neutral aquarium water for keeping and breeding shrimp. It re-mineralises e.g. RO water, rainwater, fully desalinated water etc., raising total hardness (°dGH) and carbonate hardness (KH) at a ratio of °dGH/KH: 1.0/0.5. Especially shrimp from habitats with a neutral pH do very well in water prepared with this mineral salt.
Shrimp Mineral GH/KH+ contains all the important minerals and trace elements your shrimp need for their well-being, an intensive colouration, successful breeding and healthy growth. It also furthers plant growth and the microbial regeneration of biological filter substrates.
Instructions of use
Mix with water outside of the aquarium. Shrimp Mineral dissolves almost completely within seconds, and the water is ready for use at once. Please make sure that any undissolved particles go into your tank, too. Close container after every use at once as this mineral salt absorbs moisture.
Use Shrimp Mineral to re-mineralise RO water, rainwater, fully desalinated water etc. to reach a total hardness of about 6 °dGH and/or a conductance of about 300 +/- 50 µS (Microsiemens). For this purpose, an evenly full measuring spoon (about 2 g) to 10 litres of water is sufficient.
• 200 g (sufficient for around 1000 l of aquarium water, or 6000 hardness x litres °dGH and 3000 hardness x litres °dKH) / 750 g (sufficient for around 3750 l of aquarium water, or 22500 hardness x litres °dGH and 11250 hardness x litres °dKH)
• measuring spoon included
• recosable can with screw-on lid
SaltyShrimp is one of the most popular re-mineralising products in the shrimp hobby. This product is used to remineralise RO/DI water to ensure specific and consistent parameters are reached in your shrimp tanks. As this product is a salt, it may take time to dissolve in the water. We therefore recommend allowing your remineralised water to stand for a few hours before performing your water change, to ensure that all of the salts have dissolved, and your parameters are accurate.
