Does it have any minerals and vitamins needed for the CRS?

Should I add anything else?

What is your experience?

Thanks

I dotn know what is exactly in that stuff but it will raise the TDS and probably GH and KH also. Products like that usually contain minerals like calcium and magnesium which is needed for molting. if you use RO water that or something else that will raise the GH is definitely needed.

It does have some minerals useful for CRS and plants.
Potassium, magnesium, iron and manganese for plants and calcium for shrimp and plants.

Not sure of exactly what minerals shrimp require but my shrimp are doing well and I use equalibrium on every water change (tap water).

I use biomax aminovita-p. Only the positive moments :)
Still read to improve a moult, it is possible to use chloride of calcium and milk ;)

seachem equilibrium only changes the GH. it will NOT change the PH or KH of your water. makeing it brilliant for CRS. you could use this with Tropic Marin Re-Mineral Tropic, which boost's gh-kh and ph to get the correct balance if you want a bit of kh to.
