Help - mysterious death

Recommended Posts

albash

Hi guys,

Please help! I'm encountering some CRS death over few weeks in one of my tanks. I just scoop one this morning (photo 2) and it was very pale.

Tank uses benibachi soil and RO. Put AIL and alder cones.

pH:6.3; Temp: 23C; gH:7; kH: 0, ammonia: 0; nitrite: 15ppm, TDS:125

I feed glasgarten bacter AE, glasgarten immunoglutan, shrimpydaddy's sinewy, shirakura and benibachi baby food

Symptom I observed that they show translucent body (photo 1, the middle one) - is this a disease or malnutrition?

Occasionally I blanch some green vegie to them - could pesticide kill them even after thorough clean and blanch?

Thing that puzzle me I have another tank (I keep carbon rili mix with CRS) that have same configuration as the tank where I get dead CRS but have no casualty over months.

Please some input and advice

Nitrite 15ppm ?

Is this Nitrite or Nitrate?

 

If it's nitrite, then that's your problem.

It's nitrate Jayc.

Do you think Purigen would be a suspect too?

i have almost zero experience with bee shrimp but it looks more likely to be a bacterial infection. im 99% sure it is not malnutrition.

Mine went translucent when they were stressed.

      One of my blue bolt youngsters has gotten this odd parasite or something attached to its shell.
      The shrimp itself is very lethargic and I don't expect it to survive, so I've isolated it from the tank.
      However, I'm baffled about what this may be. I've tried 3 salt baths without any result and now I'm trying a mix of Esha Exit and 2000 just to see if it will make the damn thing fall off the shrimp.
      Does anyone here has some good guesses or knows what it is?

      Those are really great photos! I especially like the established tank (last  photo) and the beautiful shrimps. I'm sure the new tank will look just as fabulous once everything grows in! It is so easy to get carried away in this hobby, how many of us have said 'just one more tank'???? I like the idea of a separate REDs tank! I just got 17 mixed red Taiwan bee shrimps this morning, acclimating those while writing this? Simon

      Following the creation of Taiwan Bee Shrimp Tank Journal #1 (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/68743-Taiwan-Bee-Shrimp-Tank-Journal), I have decided to set up another tank dedicated to Taiwan Bees. This has however ended my journey in breeding CPD's (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/66596-Planted-CPD-Breding-Setup?highlight=) Equipment - PetWorx 40l tank as used in the CPD journal - Up Aqua Pro U LED Light 45cm - ADA Amazonia - Co2, yes at the moment but will significantly reduce to a very slow 24/7 bubble count once shrimp are in - Fluval C2 HOB Filter Plants - Staurogyne Repens - Buce - Dwarf Hairgrass - Mini Christmas Moss - Micro or Mini Java Fern which i might remove to make the tank look a little more minimal Shrimp - Will likely grab some culls from my other tank to see how they go with the very low co2 injection - If these go alright will attempt to line breed some really nice shadow pandas or get into wine reds Planting Stage l Approx 1 Week After Planting Potential Inhabitants All from this tank!

      OK, I'll get the shrimps in today and then at the weekend I will take a few pictures! Simon

      I added some blue bolt shrimps about 2-3 weeks ago and they seem to be doing well! The stringy algae seems to have cleared, the tank is still a bit drab but I think it is going greener as well. Yesterday I ordered the red shrimps and am just awaiting them to be delivered later today: All going well (fingers crossed) that should be it all done now! I don't see many of the first couple of batches in the tank but I am not convinced the tank was really ready enough which would be my misjudgement, I used a different substrate, and I bought the shrimps from a shop, but I am not sure what the reason was so not prepared to 'blame' anyone else! I MAY consider getting some more from the shop but I have enough really but would like a few red wine (normal grade) or black bee mixed grades so we will see on that? These shrimp (and the blue bolts previously) came/are coming from Shrimp Corner in the UK (they sent me these pictures) which seem to be an enthusiast/business so they come directly from them (breeder) and the previous delivery was well packaged (too bloody well resulting in many swears at the time) and lovely colours and patterns. They seem to be specialising in the higher grades and especially galaxy etc. 2 days ago they won at the European shrimp cup for their red steel so they are definitely enthusiasts and I have received top quality service thus far - probably tempting fate to say this whilst awaiting a delivery, d'oh!  Anyway, big day for me today, woohoo!
