Crystal reds and crystal black shrimp, and a majority of cardina species except amanos are more sensitive though. I've never tried since I don't have a ro filter. Their water parameters have to be constant and no change in which co2 will alter parameters

You have to be very careful with shrimp. Increase slowly over days or even a week to be safe.

It used to be just the yeast and tubing going to an airstone, it seemed to be working but i saw yeast moving down the tube so I added a second bottle to make sure none of the yeast was running through the airstone into the aquarium.
Now there is water in the airstone's tubing so I assume it is no longer working.
Can anyone provide any insight?
