You'll find some breeders have all types of shrimps and would have to put up an audited list!

I only have mostly CRS, some CBS, Cherries, DAE, DRN and chameleon shrimps.

Not really, especially if you have/use

Shrimp soil

Saltyshrimp GH minerals

Mosses and ferns

Plenty of filtration!

But... Expect the odd death from time to time. Also, alot of people on here have shared the CRS water params for successful keeping and breeding :victorious:

Loach is right. I still have the odd death here and there while shrimps are getting berried consistently with more shrimplets surviving.

There are certain requirements for CRS and the likes to thrive. I'll add to his list that has worked for;

- Oxydator

- Top up only (with minimal WC)

- Lots of patience

But most importantly, don't fiddle with your tank!

Keeps the temperature down, Crystal shrimp are heat sensitive.

      Planaria easy fix.  Panacur c Kills all worms and snails shrimp happily stay alive and unaffected. Simple easy fix. The thing is it takes a couple of months for it to completely be safe for snails again. Planaria will kill shrimp, they leave a toxic trail behind them that can paralyze the little shrimp allowing them to be worm food.

      Planaria eggs (or cocoon) are way too small to be seen. So a full tear down of the tank will definitely take care of them.  Just be careful with re-using anything from the old tank. Hardscape items can be boiled. Plants need to be treated. I've always used the mild bleach treatment. 1part bleach to 19parts water, and soak for 5 minutes. Rinse carefully before putting it back into a tank. I don't use bleach on anything porous like drift wood or sponge though.  The empty tank can be washed in white vinegar, rinse clean and let dry in the sun before using the tank.

      Hope you feel better! Super keen to hear how the carbonated water approach works. Still need to find the hours I need to do a full tank tear down but planning on using carbonated water to treat the plants before they go back in. Hoping this manages to kill anything clinging to the plants. Anyone know what scud eggs are like? Looking it up, they seem to carry the eggs similar to shrimp so there shouldn't be any clinging to any driftwood or anything right? Also, I have some planaria in my tank as well (small that don't actually seem to bother the shrimp, not even the babies). Anyone know if there are eggs or anything that I need to worry about with them? Or should the full tear down and careful replacement of shrimp and plants take care of both?

      I have had Fish in most all these tanks. I never seem to be able to get rid of them They never go away Fish tank herpies. Worse than duckweed. I have a couple tanks were there may be none, 10g planted tank with 3 kuli loaches in it for 4 or 5 years, and a thin sand empty tank with Corys in it those tanks the fish I suspect might have possibly done it, I bet on the scuds, resilient basterds. I'm buying sparkling water today.

      The fish may work so that you don't even need to transfer the shrimp out to another tank, just remove the angel fish after say a week of not seeing any scud in each tank. You will have probably also lost any baby shrimp but you can rebuild on that from the adult shrimp left as long as the angel fish don't get large enough to eat those as well? If you see any big scuds you should still try and get those out manually if you can as even the fish may not be interested in those if the fish are small? I hope this works well for you. If you do transfer shrimp it is very unlikely the scuds would be on the shrimp, they are more likely to be caught in the net where they can be hard to spot if they are babies! Simon
