Please help unknown deaths

Yes it appears to be heading in the right direction. Attended another 10% water chg yesterday tds is now 170ish. What do most big time experienced keepers keep crs/cbs at ? My remineralized ro is 140 ....

Don't know if anyone replied to your question, what with all these off topic posts :)

In my discussions with Alvin Chan last week, when I visited him, he advises CRS/CBS to be kept at 140-160 TDS.

So aim for 150, as you will get fluctuations either side. pH level seem to be near 6.0 as well.

Ok 2 unexplained deaths in 2 days , in crs / sw tank:-( :-( :-( nil in adjoining cbs tank

WP post weekly 10% water change with ssm:

kh; 1

Gh: has risen to 7

Ph: 6.4

Nitrate: 0

Nitrite: 0

Ammonia 0

Tds : 170

Still havnt got the mineral powder as I cant get to the shop where they sell it grrrrr

One was a young adult the other a older gent (? PUBD at least that is what I thought until I saw the younger ine today)

Mannn can I just catch a break ? :dejected:

Do I remove a bit of water and top up with plain RO to drop gh ? If so how much ?

Could it be that it is the last of the diseased shrimp ? If that is what it was... otherwise berried mamas and growing shrimplets (still not 100% survival rate) surviving ok

Blackcat why don't you just order the minerals from a sponsor I know you have to pay postage but its less than the cost of 1 shrimp. Dean delivers next day in most cases. At least that will be one less thing to worry about. So sad that you are still having problems. Chin up you will get there:encouragement:

      It normal for.the heat to go back to the tank, the copper block is suppose to absorb the heat and take it hot water to the radiator with the fan to cool the heat, since the tube came off, the heat goes back to the block which is suppose to carry the cool water to the tank.

      Usually temperatures in cellars are pretty constant (if it is underground)? I can confirm that even branded heaters can cook the shrimp (learnt that the hard way), it happened to me so a controller is a good idea. If you are that bothered about the temperature being the same and the cellar does fluctuate a lot you may also need a cooler, depending on where you are based?  Simon

      Very sorry to hear about the tank overheating and wiping out your shrimps! Can you get a 2 plug adapter and have the heater and cooler plugged into that overheating safety device as extra security? I now what happened is probably just a freaky thing (who would expect a cooler to heat the water?) that probably won't happen again but you won't be happy with loosing the crabs???? Hopefully the shrimps will be ok with the micro crabs (beautiful red wine in the picture)? Most of the stringy algae has gone in my shrimp tank so I will do maintenance tomorrow, tests at the weekend and if all is ok I will order the (final) red shrimps next week. Thumbs up for perseverance! Simon

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️
