So I tested the water:
Ammonia: 0.5ppm
Nitrite: 0ppm
Nitrate: 10ppm

Ammonia went from 2ppm to .5ppm since I put the LR in Friday

Is 75F too low to keep my tank at?

**edit**
LA says fire shrimp can be from 72-78 so that should be okay?

Theres some kind of ”plant” on some of the rock, the lady said it helps keep nitrate and phosphate down a lot? Y'all have any idea what it is?
Very cool! You have some nice pieces of rock there!
