on Bio load :- just over a week ago I set up x2 identical 11 Litre Nano tanks
same substrate, same Lava rocks, same water + API Tap Water Conditioner & API Quick Start, same Plant's one had three Zebra Danioes + two Ramshorn Snails
the other had one Bamboo Shrimp + two Ramshorn Snails
checked the water tonight :-
25-3-18
Bamboo Shrimp - Ammonia = 0 - Nitrite = 0
Zebra Danioes - Ammonia = 0 - Nitrite = 0
here's the Observation guess the Shrimp has a far smaller Bio load

Sounds right. Fish produce more waste and 3 of them
