      As the title says "totally devastated" !
      Over the last few days most of my shrimp have died. Now I know what it feels like and it sucks
      From excitement to them arriving my first ever shrimp , several becoming berried , spotting a couple of shrimplets to then seeing them dieing off
      I have been doing water changes of around 10 to 20 % every week. I use tap water and let it age and then add  prime, superchlor, and quick atart
      I use an inert sand as the substate ,cholla ,and plenty of moss in the tank , no fish. I feed them Boss aquaria Shrimp Crack every 3 days
      Originally starting with about 25 blue gene red rillis that Disciple was so kind to send me and now about 8 are left
      PH is about 7
      Ammonia 0
      Nitrite 0
      Sorry Disciple for not looking after them , I feel pretty bad
      Any idea guys to what I have or not done right?

      Usually temperatures in cellars are pretty constant (if it is underground)? I can confirm that even branded heaters can cook the shrimp (learnt that the hard way), it happened to me so a controller is a good idea. If you are that bothered about the temperature being the same and the cellar does fluctuate a lot you may also need a cooler, depending on where you are based?  Simon

      Very sorry to hear about the tank overheating and wiping out your shrimps! Can you get a 2 plug adapter and have the heater and cooler plugged into that overheating safety device as extra security? I now what happened is probably just a freaky thing (who would expect a cooler to heat the water?) that probably won't happen again but you won't be happy with loosing the crabs???? Hopefully the shrimps will be ok with the micro crabs (beautiful red wine in the picture)? Most of the stringy algae has gone in my shrimp tank so I will do maintenance tomorrow, tests at the weekend and if all is ok I will order the (final) red shrimps next week. Thumbs up for perseverance! Simon

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.
