Shirakura Liquid Mineral Ca+ adds vital minerals to the aquarium water and raises its overall hardness (dGH). Especially when using very soft water, a lack of minerals is well-known to occur quite quickly and Shrimps might suffer from loss of colour and skinning problems. The important microorganisms in the filter and in the substrate become inactive and the water quality decreases. A water hardness (KH) of 0-2 is recommended for breeding bee shrimps, as is a pH-value of less than 7 in order to avoid the formation of ammoniac. However, achieving these values, the overall hardness (dGH) often gets too low. In this case it is recommended to harden the water with Liquid Mineral Ca+ in order to avoid the death of the shrimps. The water hardness (KH) is not influenced by this. Mr. Shirakura furthermore recommends maintaining an overall hardness (dGH) of 5 or more for a healthy and strong skin.
- For a new aquarium, add 5 ml (about 60 droplets) of Liquid Mineral Ca+ per 10 l water. For existing aquariums with shrimps, add this dose over several days. Prepare exchange water mixture beforehand
- 1 drop of Liquid Mineral Ca+ to 1 liter water raises the general hardness (GH) by about 1° dGh
The range of products by Shirakura, designed to meet the needs of bee shrimps, includes substrate, basic feed and special rearing feed as well as several mineral water additives and conditioners. Together they create perfect ambient conditions, which are of great importance for the bee shrimps' health, growth, colourfulness and breeding.

für kleine Aquarien bei weichem Wasser gut geeignet. Habe das Gefühl das es den Garnelen die Häutung erleichtert und Sie lebhafter sind. Für große eher unggeeignet da man zuviel davon bräuchte und es dann zu teuer würde.
