well the spike from the grunge never went higher than 1.0 it dropped to 0 the next day without creating nitrites at all.
So on top of that I did put the shrimp in on Saturday evening. I checked ammonia levels yesterday it was still 0
Today I did a full set of parameters
Temp is 78.9
was at 10 drops (api)
phosphate 2.0 +
calcium is still really high like 500 ( im not sure Im doing that test right still)
How high should or do I let the ammonia rise too ? Do I take the shrimp out at some point?
Right now they look like the skin membrane around them is swollen and ready to explode hahha or almost a fuzzy appearance around them.
