FS: SALTY SHRIMP Bee Shrimp Mineral supplementation or remineralization for RO water

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I recently bought a tub of salty shrimp bee shrimp mineral for my new RO/DI setup, but it is just too much for my need. I am offering a portion of this wonderful product for anyone using RO/DI water. It is regarded as one of the best shrimp minerals for remineralization of RO water and lots of people had success with breeding, and is comparable to other brand such as Mosura Mineral Plus.

I have only 2 x 200g (net) Salty Shrimp Bee Shrimp GH+ mineral available, each for AUD 25 inclusive of shipping, or AUD 28 for express. Take both for AUD 43 posted, it is well packed in a new plastic container with screw lid, silicon gel and product label on the lid (see picture). The dosing instruction is available on product website, (SALTYSHRIMP - Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+), the retail package comes with a 3ml measure spoon which is not included in this sale. For comparison, a retail 90g is sold for AUD 19 (exc delivery), 230g pack is sold for AUD 33 (exc delivery, usually extra AUD 13-15) on ebay. 200g should last one for a little while (according to official information 230g treats 1530L of water).

Basically you mix small amount of mineral to the RO/DI water slowly and achieve TDS around 100 for GH of 5. It feels just like salt and easily dissolved within seconds, A 10L RO water change took me 2ml to achieve this.

PM for detail. Thanks for watching!




Official Product Information

Bee-Shrimp Mineral GH+ has especially been developed for the keeping and breeding of bee shrimp, bumblebee shrimp and tiger shrimp in an aquarium, to mineralise RO water, rainwater, fully desalinated water etc. It raises the total hardness (°dH) without significantly influencing the carbonate hardness (KH). This is especially important for shrimp originating from softwater habitats (ratio of KH/°dH: 0.06/1.0).

Bee-Shrimp Mineral GH+ contains all the important minerals and trace elements your shrimp need for their well-being, an intensive colouration, successful breeding and healthy growth. It also furthers plant growth and the microbial regeneration of biological filter substrates. The danger of noxious bacteria is reduced, as these salts especially further the growth of antagonistic (beneficial) microflora.

Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+ does not influence the pH directly.

For keeping and breeding bee shrimp, aim for a pH of under 7. As soon as biological biodegradation processes start in your tank this may happen all by itself. However, if the pH remains higher, the low carbonate hardness (KH) enables you to influence the pH very easily, e.g. by the use of black alder cones or peat (both containing fulvic acids), or with pH-reducing additives.

Instructions of use

Mix with water outside of the aquarium. Bee-Shrimp Mineral GH+ dissolves almost completely within seconds, and the water is ready for use at once. Please make sure that any undissolved particles go into your tank, too. Close the container tightly after use.


Use Bee-Shrimp Mineral GH+ to re-mineralise RO water, rainwater, fully desalinated water etc. to reach a total hardness of about 6 °dH and/or a conductance of about 200 +/- 50 µS (Microsiemens). For this purpose, an evenly full measuring spoon (about 3 g) to 20 litres of water is sufficient.

Measuring spoon enclosed.

Available packaging sizes (screw socket)

90 g (sufficient for approx. 600 l of aquarium water)

230 g (sufficient for approx. 1530 l of aquarium water)

1000 g (sufficient for approx. 6660 l of aquarium water)
