Pro Shrimp's comment: We are using Bacter AE in all our tanks. It's the best biofilm builder on the market. Biofilm is what babies and adult shrimp are feeding on. Lack of biofilm in new tanks is one of the main reasons for dead shrimp. Regular use of Bacter AE increases surival rates of baby shrimp exponentially.
Beware: Some people are advising to use Bacter AE under the substrate when setting up a tank. Please do not use it there. The powder will rot and have a negative impact on water quality. Use products like BorneoWild Minerax, Enlive & Bebi instead!
