Muscular necrosis on C. typus?

Recommended Posts

Ludwiggg17

Hello everyone, i got 5 C. typus at 7:00 p.m. (UTC+8). They were stuck for a day or so from shipping before i received them and i got worried some of them would've died. In some kind of miracle 4 of them survived. When i got them acclimated to my tanks i took some time to observe them and i noticed some of them had this pale white look on their bodies and immediately got worried because i know i could endanger my other shrimp. Sorry for low res pics i'll try to get more shots tomorrow

Here are two pictures of one of them:

I wouldn't want to commit using those photos, and I don't know what a healthy shrimp of that type looks like to be honest. I would expect some discolouration from shipping etc, but that same thing could also have made them sick as you say.

When I looked up pictures on google all the shrimps were a cloudy light brown so they are naturally cloudy and maybe just lost some colour in transit, see if anything changes in a day or two?

Can you remove them and keep them separate for maybe a week, even in a bucket etc, using tank water as they have acclimated to that already! Of course catching and moving them again will stress them even more............

I'll try quarantining them starting tomorrow morning and try to keep an eye out if there is any development on their condition.

Temps here have been reaching 30 degrees celsius in the noontime but it usually hovers around 26-29 throughout the day. My tanks read at 25-27 during the day. 

Edit:  Here are links to their pictures, 2 of the shrimps are luckily getting better and do not show any sign of disease ( first 2 pics, i havent been able to snap a pic of the 4th as it has been hiding since this morning)

Argh! Don't use photobucket.

As I thought. 30DegC was the cause. Out of 5 you got, 1 died and 4 survived but were affected by the heat during delivery. 

Keep them cool, cooler than 25degC if you can manage it and they might recover.

Good luck.

Sorry for using photobucket, i'll refrain from using that next time.

I'll find a way to lower the temps by tomorrow, maybe i'll float some frozen water bottles or set up a fan next to the tanks. Thanks so much!

      Great to here it is now working and you have some shrimplets! What you say regarding the stone makes sense to me! It would be easier and more stable to get GH/KH+ if you can, as the proportion will be set? Simon

      So more good news, theres been an explosion in the shrimplet population in the tank! 🙂 So upon seeing this I thought, I'd test the water to see if anything's changed and what do you know, the ph is sitting around ~7.4. Thats the lowest I've gotten it down to! So I thought I'd share what I did to get to this point. As you know, I was struggling to lower my tanks ph, even after swiching to remineralised RO/DI water. Moreover I was using Salty Shrimp GH+ and had to KH myself but found that doing so increased my waters ph quite high.   So more good news, theres been an explosion in the shrimplet population in the tank! 🙂 So upon seeing this I thought, I'd test the water to see if anything's changed and what do you know, the ph is sitting around ~7.4.

Moreover I was using Salty Shrimp GH+ and had to add KH myself but found that doing so increased my waters ph quite high. Well, as per my last post, I ended up continuing to remineralise my ro water with SS GH+ and use that without ever adding KH. One thing I noticed was that even though I wasnt adding KH, I was still testing a kh of 2-3 in the tank for quite a while. Now someone in another forum then suggested that KH from having the seiryu stones prior in addition to the KH I was adding initially  had been soaked up by the substrate and was leaking it back into the water column and thus continuing the buffer the ph. He suggested I therefore continue my water changes and eventually the KH should go down. That was a month ago, after another weekly water change yesterday and seeing the multitudes of shrimplets, today I also tested the KH in addition to the ph, and got a reading of 1-2 degrees, so it is indeed slowly going down. Im sure as a result the ph has also gone down. Of course once the kh gets <1 I am going to have to actually add KH to the tank and perhaps finally get my hands on the SS GH+ AND KH+

      Superb news and long may it continue. You probably have a male in the mix, but even if not then there will be one amongg the babies, you would then just need to wait for itt to mature (about 3 months?)! Simon

      Thanks for the help! I did the salt bath and it seems to have worked. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

      Glad we could be of some help. Always good to see another new shrimpkeeper's success in this hobby.
