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!

      Neocaridina GH 6-8, TDS 150-250 Caridina GH 4-6, TDS 120-180 I suspect he just got the wrong word out and meant neocaridina! Simon

      I saw a you tube video from Flip aquatics and he said cardinia want gh 6-8 but if I use the gh+ to get it that high then my tds is 180-200?
    • sdlTBfanUK
      The TDS of 130-150 is perfecr for caridina shrimp, as is the GH 4-5 so there is no problem there! If you are using the shrimp GH+ with RO water then it is perfectly balanced for shrimps and try not to obsess about hitting an exact figure balance. I had some waterlouse in one of my tanks so i had to re-do the tank. It was a long time ago but it worked and haven't had any since. I was using leaves from a pond and that must have been how they got into the tank. I didn't use any chemicals just took everything out and checked it, and re-set it up, using the same plants etc but carefully checking there were no hitchhikers. They weren't difficult to catch but without removing everything you won't know if you have got them all? You can just put the shrimp and fish in a bucket temporarily while you do the tank. Even filters etc will need to be checked/cleaned as well of course! Be very thorough and don't rush through it and be careful with any equipment like nets as you don't want to accidently transfer a tiny scud to another tank etc. As JayC says any chemicals will also likely kill shrimps so you would still need to remove them if you want to use chemicals!  Simon

      Only way is to physically catch them either with a net or a trap. Unfortunately any chemical treatment will kill scuds will also impact shrimps.   150 TDS is still ok for Caridina. 
    • Able
      So now my neo tank I infested with scuds...... is there any safe way to eliminate them? Without removing all shrimp? Also I started a 20 gallon long for cardinias. matten filter tds130 but I can’t get the gh  above 4-5 without raising the tds over 150 what am I doing wrong? i use rodi water  tds0 with shrimp king gh+ Using Brightwell substrate
