Water Change

Last night I did my weekly water change... Based on my approx 80L water volume tank, I changed 10L of water (fully filled pail of water in a 10L pail) each week.. Siphon out the water and switched on my RO/DI water to auto fill up the tanks.. (It will take some time to fill up all the tanks but at least it will switched off automatically after it reaches the level that I have set it..)

After siphon, I will just stick to a sequence of bacteria enhancing and re-mineralization of the water (since water is RO).. Checking the TDS to maintain within the 150-180ppm range..

First dosing is NB 'liquid bacteria', following by NB 'active water', NB 'powder bacteria' and lastly, KU菌 (a natural based beneficial bacteria release) which can let the shrimps feed as well..

After adding in 2 scoop of KU菌, this is what happen.. (Oh my god! It's foamy!! But don't worry, it's ok..)

These little 'cereal looking' pieces will slowly sink and cover the surface of the soil.. Shrimps will slowly eat it up as well, so it's ok..

After 2-5 minutes after dosing the KU菌, the water surface goes back to normal.. No more foam..

Here are the 4 items which I am using to share...

Happy shrimping to all and have a great weekend...
