Have you tested the parameters of the water? There isn't much we can help with without those basic figures? Usually tap water works with neocaridina shrimp but your water may be too hard!
If there were DOA then the others may also be sick or weakened so some may die soon after they are put in to the tank.
When you get a shrimp deivery you should drip acclimate them over as many hours as possible. Were they delayed in transit do you think which caused the doa?
$17.70 from somewhere in Doncaster.
The tank is cycled. It’s been set up for a month now and I’ve been dosing some bacter ae every day to create biofilm. I tested for ammonia and nitrites and they were 0 before adding the shrimp. Nitrates were 10. I only had snails in the tank before the shrimp so that’s why there isn’t a bunch of gunk. I thought Neocaridina shrimp needed harder water? I had 5 D.O.A. so maybe it still is having affects from that.

I decided to go with it cause it was the cheapest I found and figured I could use it for my new 15 gallon!
Thank you for the tips but yes I am going to try removing the stones and see how my tap water goes first, whilst I wait for my ro unit and get used to using it for my 15 gallon.
thx for your reply... JAYC, yes.. I want to seek your comment what should I do to start my fancy tiger project...but I am a bit confuse..
so what should I do after I got F1 from crs x oebt?
should I just keep breeding f1 x f1 = f2 ... so on.. or do I need to breed back to crs or crs parents to get more solid white and red to get f2?
