    Default HELP!! SUBSTRATE FOR 6 TANK RACK - WITH SUMP

    Hi!

    Im assembling a rack of 6 tanks with 41 long * 40 lange * 27 high! 44liters each

    The problem is that they will be all conected to a single sump! I need to put in the rack CRS, CBS, TIGERS and Neocaridinas!

    Wich substrate is the better knowing the rack filtering conditions and the shrimps that i have?

    Im thinking about Akadama in the 6 tanks! What you experts have to say??

    ( SORY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH )!

    tHANKS!

    Hi Alexandre,

    What are your requirements for the substrate? Will you be using RO water with Shrimp specialty salts? If yes, any proven substrate should be more or less the same.

    Regarding mixing different substrate in your tank, you can mix them if you set up all of them together. However with your single sump design, you should not add substrate to one of the tank after you have shrimp inside. The polluted water will kill them.

    I'm not sure are you a experienced shrimp keeper, if you are, you can try DIY substrate too. I have an article that talks about how to DIY substrate: http://www.shrimpydaddy.com/p/supercharging.html
