Dead shrimp :(

Recommended Posts

Dean

Hi guys,

Some of you may have noticed I have not been around much lately as I have been super busy

With work (tiling business).

I have only had time to go into my shrimp room maybe once every 7-10 day and have not really done much other than have a quick look and feed.

So when I went in there I noticed a lot of dead shrimp and did a few test and found my nitrates where off the chart at 160+.

I tried to find the cause and after a close look found a packet of food that I thought I chucked on top of the cover glass had missed and fallen in a tank behind a big ball of moss.

So a little disappointed with myself as I have lost 80-90% of my shrimp :(

So I won't have any shrimp for sale for a few months now.

Sux a little but it's just part of the hobby :)
