no deaths since the start of the treatment

That's great news. Sounds like it was a success.

So did you end up using JBL Furanol?

We don't get any JBL products in Australia. Don't know why.

Lets hope so! :) I just want to see the rust markings go away to be sure now. 

Yes the product name was JBL Furanol 250 (Furanol 2 was renamed or something).

I also don't get JBL products in Portugal anymore, my friend told me he got them from a Spanish Online Store.

Does the instructions say anything about doing a repeat treatment ?

if not you should do another dose one week after the first.

Yes it says it can be repeated the 7th day if the problem persists.

Repeat it!

even if you don't see it. Your eyes cannot see bacteria.

Yes today got some sad news, the berried tiger died, she had no rust marks nor anything. Nitrates were around 15mg/litter, could be it and the stress of being berried or she was just sick. Now I'll try to hatch the eggs artificially.

I will repeat treatment and increase a bit the dosage (it was also said it could be done in the instructions, instead of 2 tablets per 50 litter i could use 2 per 25 litter)

Ok second dose of treatment is almost over but I bring sad news about the tank with the Pinto Shrimp. 

Besides the female in fig1 that died before the second dosage I lost a red tiger female and a young tiger today. The pinto is more or less in the same situation I don't see improvements nor is condition getting worst.

Little update:

On the pinto tank one of the Blue bolts got berried not sure what to think after the tiger that got berried died. 

Went to the vet and they only found Oxytetracicline as an eye ointment not on pills. At this point I'm getting more and more to the point where I want to sterilize my tanks, heaters, filters and nets with bleach, get new substrate and restart all my colonies but I started noticing something, most online shops with Taiwan Bee shrimp photos has some shrimps with those same markings except I edited my photos increasing the light a bit to be better show the markings so I'm starting to guess this is totally normal and is not a disease. Could it be? Should I see some eroded zones on their shell?

      Yes, I can confirm that rock / pebble rock / gravel will cause the pH to raise over time.  My RODI water comes out as around 6.8 according to my pH meter.  And I did follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wait 5-6 minutes when measuring RODI water because of the low ion.  After adding it to the tank, the pH becomes 7.2 -> 7.4.  The highest that I've recorded in my journal is 7.6 but it never goes higher than that. Here is my shrimp's diet: On M-W-F, I feed Bacter AE + Shrimp Baby.  On T-TH-S, I feed Shrimp Dinner. And on Sunday, I feed Shrimp King Protein to increase shrimp production.  Water change is once a month because I have a ton of floating plants to keep Nitrate low. @sdlTBfanUK It's probably because of the low quality image so it makes some of the PRL babies' color turn black 😁 But there are no CBS at all in this shrimp tank

      That's very interesting. I have read a lot that PH fluctuates throughout the day naturally anyway but it is interesting that your Bee shrimp are fine at PH7.4 as indeed mine were also (although it is normally outside their ideal range)! The PH in my tank started at about 5.5 and then went up to 7.5 over about a year (rock caused that I suspect) but as it was a slow progression it didn't seem to have any affect on them at all! It looks like you have some crystal black babies in that tank as well? Simon

      @sdlTBfanUK pH is around 7.4 in the morning and 7.2 at night.  I know it's dangerous and easy to have pH swing when you don't have active substrate.  That's why I measure pH at least twice a day using the pH meter.

      Great picture and love the shrimplets. Also pleased to hear it is all working so well! Do you now what the PH is of the new 20G tank? Simon
    • sdlTBfanUK
      That sounds great and pleased you have decided to go ahead. As you don't have any occupants in the tank at the moment it should be easy to get the tank parameters right by doing the planned water changes and add very little of the GH/KH+ until you have done the last large water change on Tuesday, that way it is easier to add the GH/KH+ to the level you want directly into the tank then - easier than finding it is over and having to get it down?  IF you were thinking of getting the shrimps from ProShrimp, they have quite a variety, bear in mind that there is postage cost only to a certain value (I think it is £35) so it may be better value to order a few more shrimps instead of paying the postage - if that makes sense??? If you are having them delivered Prohrimp or ebay you need to be home to sign/receive them obviously and IF using ebay MAKE SURE the seller is sending 'Express Delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery (TM) 1:00 pm)'! Hopefully we will hear that everything has worked out well and all the hassle hasn't marred the experience.  Simon
