You need an osmotically neutral solution to keep them submerged for long, I'll try to find the recipe. Yes they sense pH and salt concentrations

Physiological Salt Solution (PSS)  6.0 mM NaCl, 3.0 mM KCl, 1.0 mM CaCl2 ,0.1 mM NaHCO3 ,0.5 mM MgCl2.

You could try getting a bottle of sterile eyewash and trying a few dilutions of that - roughly 10% might be a good starting point 

Mm , mmhm , and does the feffect of Pb on Palladium before?

Not sure I follow, Palladium?
