    Default CRS losing white

    Hi
    I notice that especially in the morning my CRS have transparent and faint white strips. It improves during the day. Is it lack of some mineral or it is normal? They are molting regularly and have different aged of offspring.

    I have a 150 L tank with 20 CRS. I use inert substrate and Oliver Knott substrate mix.
    I use my local well water
    temp 22c
    pH- 6,8
    kH-3
    gH-5
    TDS-170
    PO4-0
    NO3-2
    Fe-0
    Mg-10
    K-10

    Most shrimp loose color in the dark. Gets better when the lights go's on. Only HQ shrimp from Pure Red Line in example will remain most of their colors in the dark.

    IMHO.... your KH is too high, GH is slightly too low, and TDS too high

    KH = <1
    GH = 6
    TDS = 120 PPM

    *Salty Shrimp GH+ will put you right where you need to be if using pure H2O
    (R.O./etc)
