OK...I'm looking to get two things to give them a try. In particular I want to get...
a. Indian Almond/Ketapang leaves. My CRS and Diamond's in one tank with Soilmaster for substrate are breeding OK. My CRS in an Eco Complete tank are not. My thought is to add these leaves to lower pH and hopefully help breeding. Food and temperature are identical, which is why I want to adjust pH.
b. Montmorillonite rocks. There is a source in Culver City. They are known to enhance the coloration of shrimp. Not sure how. Worst case...it will absorb impurities in the water (Maybe this is how it helps?).
I'd prefer San Diego area, but would be willing to split and do a single shipment from one major area to another for distribution (LA/OC to SD, or SD to LA/OC). After all...shipping is probably cheaper than gas!
