    Surface agitation increases the gas exchange (O2-CO2 mostly) between open air and what's in the water and changes the pH, but KH is not affected. KH will increase though as water evaporates and...

    The yellow eyes would indicate that the tiger is from a OE strain. The pattern is on it is one you would find in a common wild tiger though.

    Rili shrimp are a mutation of cherries, as I understand it. Treat them the same and they will breed for you easily. Search this board and you will find the parameters necessary to raise them.

    Not sure how using coral rocks instead of crushed coral is different. They both affect the water the same--GH, KH, and pH all rise.... perhaps at different rates, but effect is the same. It really...

    Being that the shrimp in question is a hybrid, it will be virtually impossible to tell what kind of offspring and at what ratios you will get. No one knows the exact proportions of a specific trait...

    It means that the SSS has been crossed with TW Bee and that it is an F1. The F1 carries the gene and you can *possibly* get some offspring with TW bee patterns. You will get a mix of SSS and TW...

    I'd recommend more plants as this the most natural way you can reduce nitrates. Fast growing stems and/or floaters as others have suggested. Purigen works, too! :
