SaltyShrimp Sulawesi Mineral 8.5
SaltyShrimp Sulawesi Mineral 8.5 was developed based on the results of scientific research into the water chemistry of the Malili lakes in Sulawesi. It serves for the mineralization of osmosis water, rain water, distilled water, etc. and requires a little more effort to dissolve completely. The water enriched with these minerals will almost exactly match that of Lake Towuti with a high pH of 8.5 and will also reduce the amount of pathogens.
Sulawesi Mineral 8.5 contains all the important minerals and trace elements that the well-known shrimps from Sulawesi are necessary for their health, development and colors. The mineral promotes the microbiological regeneration of filter substrates. Increases the carbonate hardness and total hardness with a ratio of KH / ° dH = 0.78 / 1.0.
Shrimp originating from Lake Towuti on Sulawesi (for example, the harlequin shrimp -Caridina woltereckae-, or the red-striped shrimp -Caridina striata-) are still difficult to farm in captivity. This was the reason for traveling to the lakes of Sulawesi in 2011 (after a first trip in 2008) to take a look at the environmental conditions and to take water samples for analysis.
The results of these analyzes show fundamental differences in water chemistry compared to the Malili lakes. A completely revised composition 'Sulawesi Mineral 8.5' is the result of this.
Less fussy Sulawesi shrimp such as the cardinal shrimp (Caridina dennerli) can be successfully kept and farmed in both Sulawesi Mineral 7.5 and Sulawesi Mineral 8.5. For the more difficult species, we hope to achieve long-term successful breeding results through the use of Sulawesi Mineral 8.5, which is almost identical to the water chemistry of Lake Towuti.

Dosing advice SaltyShrimp Sulawesi Mineral 7.5
Add Sulawesi Mineral 7.5 to osmosis water, rain water, distilled water, etc. for re-mineralization to a total hardness (GH) of approximately 7 ° dH and / or a conductivity of approximately 220 +/- 40 µS (Microsiemens) is reached. This corresponds to a slightly full measuring scoop (approx. 3 grams) per 20 liters of water.
Measuring spoon is included.
Mix Sulawesi Mineral 7.5 with water outside the aquarium. It will dissolve almost completely if CO2 is added for several days. With a normal CO2 dosage (1 bubble per second) the salt will dissolve in about 3-4 days. When you dissolve the powder with CO2, aerate the water for at least 3 hours with an air stone to drive out the CO2. After this, the water is ready for use. It is recommended to keep the temperature in line with the aquarium water temperature. Also add the undissolved particles to the aquarium. Tighten the lid again, because the powder easily absorbs moisture.
