Are my Red Rilli shrimp infected?

Recommended Posts

Lucy

Hi! 
im having trouble figuring out if my new red Rilli shrimp are healthy or not. I have two shrimp with abnormalities and I want to make sure they aren’t parasites or infections that are causing them. For some reason this site isn’t allowing me to attach the photos. One has a discoloration and the other has a yellow spot under the saddle.

A yellow spot under the saddle? The saddle is usually yellow...

      That all sounds great. If you are worried about water changes, there probably is no need, in a tank of that size with so few shrimps, and being newly set up, it will be fine to just leave the water changes for a while anyway! Hopefully you will soon have shrimplets to watch in the tank in lockdown! Simon

      That was a popetpop aquarium air bio filter. It goes by many names. If you search for "aquarium air bio filter" you will find it. https://www.amazon.com/Mironey-Driven-Filter-Sponge-Aquarium/dp/B08F7HF4LY/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=aquarium+air+bio+filter&qid=1618815113&sr=8-8 OR https://www.amazon.com/JZHBEI-Driven-Filter-Aquarium-Breeding/dp/B08NGN4XW6/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=aquarium+air+bio+filter&qid=1618815113&sr=8-13   However, these are not very efficient compared to the double filters like these ...  https://www.amazon.com/Hygger-Aquarium-Sponges-Submersible-Salt-Water/dp/B07RFL4JMM/ref=pd_di_sccai_3?pd_rd_w=GdZGR&pf_rd_p=c9443270-b914-4430-a90b-72e3e7e784e0&pf_rd_r=EPWQB6HAJ2415WQB0JW9&pd_rd_r=53d5601e-2d0e-479b-925f-785187769910&pd_rd_wg=rbF6X&pd_rd_i=B07RFL4JMM&psc=1

      What filter is it? It seems that the link doesn't work. Is it Polar Aurora?
