    Hey Trevor they aren't at their full potential. Got all from a mixed tank and separated so trying my best to get their full colour out but you can see they aren't green jades in the picture

    Good plan, given the greed jades I saw abroad recently for the first time in the flesh, the one in your pic did not look too bad and a good starting point to selectively breed from.

    I don't think it will be a problem.
    When the shrimps start climbing out of the tank in a mass exodus then you need to throttle the valve a bit more. ;)

    I have neos and med grade caridina in CO2 tanks and no probs, with the really higher grade more finicky stuff I would opt for not..

    Wanted to add that CO2 levels are one thing, but the other factor effecting the livelihood of the shrimp would be the ferts. I normally use Tropica and this seems find. With the higher grade shrimp 50% weekly WCs are not recommended so another factor to consider..

    I have seen stunning RCS abroad in a heavily saturated CO2 tank and they seem to be doing fine.
