Does my shrimp have milky white disease? She is berried and looks a bit white.

Hi @Lucy,

It is difficult to see in that photo.

Can you try getting a side macro shot of the shrimp?

That is one heavily berried shrimp which looks fine/normal to me. Lots of shrimplets to look forward too!

Looks fine to me too.

She is heavily berried and that means you will have babies soon.

Feed her well. More protein will be good. If you have not tried frozen blood worms, that is the what you should feed when the females are berried. Really should have started feeding more protein when you see a saddle. But better later than never.

Oh wow, thank you. I had no idea about the bloodworms!

      Midges are cosmopolitan.  Bloodworms are commonly of the genus Chironomus.. and fun-fact the red colour is haemoglobin which binds oxygen (as it does in our blood) allowing midge larvae to live in low oxygen environments like the sludge in the bottom of a fish-food bucket. https://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/chironomus-plumosus

      Thats most interesting, I didn't think we had midges here in SE England, but maybe just get a small number. We certainly get mosquito here though as there are 2 lakes in the grounds, I have friends coming sunday and they will be sent to get some daphnia and mosquito larvae, they usually take a tub full home for their fish as well! I will pass on the tip about the jelly if they see any in their bucket! Simon

      Bloodworms are larvae of midges (mosquito-like flies without the "pronger") The adults lay eggs in the water that look like little sacks of jelly.  You sometimes see them hanging from the water surface or stuck to the edges of the bucket.  You can wipe the "jelly" off and put it in your tank and when the larvae hatch they are great fry food.... but if you dont have enough fish to eat them they may live in the tank and emerge to fly around your house.

      I think the fins will healquite quickly if they do get damaged, it just looks a bit worrying to the owners eye! Simon

      See, that’s the kind of conciseness in a post that I completely lack 😂 Yeah I’ve also heard it can be. Luckily no damaged fins, besides a teeny tiny tear in one of Tessa’s fins.
