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?

      Had a quick look in my new invertebrates book and think they are Limnopilos naiganetri! If so it says temperature 24 to 28, Ph 7.5 - 8.5. They should be given driftwood and floating plants. It also says that although they carry eggs, raising the young has not been done in captivity (book produced 2015). This youtube video says she has had breeding though???? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOIq4AsZCE I had thought about getting some in the past but as she says they are a bit like spiders so that put me off................ Hope everything else is going well still! Simon

      I'm really happy, finally a local shop in Hong Kong had some of these crabs, not to sure which variation of the spider crabs,, but they advertised them as miniature spider crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) , I was going to bring them back from Taiwan if I find any, but no need now, got them for about GBP 13.50 for 10 crabs, I will pick up another 30 crabs in the next few day.   The first photo is the crabs in the bag, I won't get home till tmr, the second photo is taken at the shop.

      You can do large water changes, I do it every 6 months to reset the minerals in the water, but you cannot just dump the new water back into the tank. It needs to be fed in slowly. I drip in the new water after adjusting it to match previous parameters.

      Shrimp don't need much of a water change as they are low bioload! I have 30L and only do 2L per week so as with JayC cut back on the water change amount, even .5 litre would be ok! Large water changes tend to trigger moulting so they may be moulting too often? They may drop the eggs if they aren't fertilised and therefore unwanted! Have you seen any that look to be able yet?
