is there a specific reason you chose to use ADA instead of just sand for your neos? are the tanks heavily planted?

Thats awesome Brad. The Amazonia is an excellent soil. Keep in mind there is an extended cycle time before the tank will be ready for shrimp. This soil and some others will leach ammonia while cycling and can take 4-8 weeks. Once its cycled, it is very stable for 2+ years and is an excellent choice if you decide to get caridina shrimp later on as it will buffer toward softer, slightly acidic parameters which is perfect for Bee shrimp as well as neos.
