What is Shrimp pHa and pHb?
Shrimp pHa and pHb are part of a two-step system which buffers the water to the natural pH levels found in the natural habitats of each specific variant of shrimp.

This product does not contain sodium, so is not harmful to plant life in your tank, in fact these solutions can actually encorage plant growth.
What is Shrimp Start?
Shrimp Start is a complete conditioner used to convert ammonia, chlorine and chloramine into a non-toxic form, which is then easily removed by your aquarium’s biofilter, additionally it can also be used to detoxify heavy metals found in tap water when adding to your tank. Shrimp Start will also have no effect on the pH levels of your water.
All of these treatments work together to make a safe and natural environment for your freshwater shrimps.
|Directions for use
|Use 5ml for each 20l of new water. This is better being added to new water although it can be added into the aquarium directly, in which the dosage would be based on aquarium volume. If there are high chloramine concentrations, a double dose is safe to use. Up to 5 times the dosage may be used to detoxify nitrate if there is an emergency. If the temperature is less than 30°C and the chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
|Add 5ml for every 40l of water every 2 weeks to maintain iodine levels for freshwater shrimp. If you have humate soils, use this dose once a week instead. Using this dosage will raise iodine levels by 0.006 mg/l. Do not exceed the recommended dosage. It is recommended to wait 2 weeks before using this product on newly purchased shrimp.
|This product is designed to be used when setting up your aquarium for the first time or making water changes. 5ml of this solution will raise 20l of water by 2 dGH. To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to use distilled water, although it can be used with tap water if the water's hardness has been tested. This product is not to be used when replacing evaporated water.
|Shrimp pHa and Shrimp pHb
|Use to achieve the target pH levels for your tank. The dosage is dependent on which type of shrimp you have, as the target pH varies. For Crystal Bee Shrimp, the target pH levels are 5.8-6.8, so 25ml of Shrimp pHa and 2.5ml of Shrimp pHb is required. For Neocardinia, the target pH levels are 6.0-7.5, so 20ml of Shrimp pHa and 15ml of Shrimp pHb are needed. For Tiger Shrimp, the target pH levels are 7.0-7.5, so use 15ml of Shrimp pHa and 20ml of Shrimp pHb. For Sulawesi Shrimp, the target pH levels are 7.5-8.5, so use 2.5ml of Shrimp pHa and 25ml of Shrimp pHb All does are calculated for 20L of water, so adjust as necessary. Dosage can be doubled safely, if necessary, but if you want to avoid any pH shock, break down the dosage over a 24-hour period.
As pHa lowers the pH levels, if lower levels are required you can add 2.5ml per every 20L of water every 12 hours until the desired level is reached. Shrimp pHb can be used to raise the pH levels in the water if necessary, so you can add 2.5ml per every 20L of water every 12 hours until the desired level is reached.
