    Today I measured NH4 and OMG I found 0,2ppm reading. I just couldn't believe my eyes.
    I add immediately Easy Life Filter Medium and changed 20% of water. I hope I did right...
    I am embarrassed about this situation but it is still not solving the overall problem.
    You hyoushoku said that the adult looks OK, just that the shell is not shiny enough. What does it mean? Are there some kind of nutrients they are lacking?

    Their colour seem to developed properly (not the best), but the shiny is not glossy. This may able to be fixed by increase the GH.

    Today I moved all shrimps into main tank. I hope that increasing the GH up to 6 improve the situation. For micro elements I use Easy Life ProFito. I heard that Seachem Flourish Trace is recommended but is there any differences?

    I have not tried ProFito before, but the chemical composition should work too.

    I went to local pet shop and saw there Seachem Flourish but not Flourish Trace. What different they have and is it safe to put to tank Flourish instead of Frourish Trace?
    I read that Flourish contained Chlorine 1,15%

    Trace version does not contain macro nutrients.

    I able to get Flourish Trace today and started to use it, I hope it helps. Week ago I discovered CRS juveniles in my main tank. Then I count them five, today I able to count only two of them. I took picture of juvenile ( it is not good quality) and of whole tank. If you see something wrong in it let me know. I use Oliver Knott's and JBL sansibar substrates. Ph in tank 6,5, GH 5 I really want to fix this problem.

    Hi,

    Your carpet is so lush, are you injecting CO2?

    I did it earlier (some weeks ago) and injected very small amount. Now I am not injecting any CO2 and I have a Sera Super Peat in filter.

    I just remembered that I use Ultraviolet sterilization in my tank too. Can it affect my water quality?
