View Full Version : RCS Size ...?

My friend sent me some of his RCS. The ones he has are over an inch long, yet he just sent me babies. I've had them for 5 months now in a 10gal [same size as his tank] and they haven't appeared to have grown. I see that they molt, but yet the size change isn't really noticeable. They're almost the same size as when I got them. I was wondering if it was something that had to do with my water, because my pH is 7.8 and his is 8.4. They become berried and produce shrimplets, yet the offspring don't survive for long. Everything is the same between the tanks down to the letter. The only difference is the pH. Could this be the problem, or what?

What tank temperature are you and your friend maintaining?
