Dead shrimp again

Recommended Posts

Twellsy

Its been 2 weeks since the last shrimp died , I have changed a few things around in tank and started adding minerals to the water

How long should I wait before I look to add more mischlings to the tank ?

Cheers Twellsy

Great news.....Just check your PH, TDS & GH....if they're all stable, and you're feeling confident, go for it.... :-)

Thanks BB , I will check the parameters again on Friday before I do anything. Pretty confident my main issue was an ammonia spike

I personally do 1-2, 5-10% WC every week, just to avoid any spikes etc..... peace of mind, and therapy for me. Weird ?, but I kinda enjoy WC's.... feels Ive accomplished something :happydance:

I don't mind doing water changes now that I have a good water change setup , it used to be a pain in the butt and lots of buckets everywhere. I have started doing smaller water changes more often.

      I have the opposite problem... too many males. Bought some Black Rose. 15 males and 5 females. Dumped 10 males in my cull tank.

      Love it! Looks great! Is that filter shrimp safe?

      Nice and minimalist. What is that substrate you are using? It's so "round".

      I tried that trick in the bottle and worked nicely. Here’s the 10 gallon cardinia tank only have 5 crs and 5 cbs and one blue bolt  The wood is buried to keep it from floating till it’s water logged.

      If you purchased Salty Shrimp GH+, that is a premixed mineraliser. That means the manufacturer has premixed Calcium sulphate and Magnesium sulphate together at a ratio of around 4:1. If you want more control over the Ca:Mg ratio or if you want to make GH/KH+ you can purchase these ingredients and mix your own.  I have a sticky post in Water Parameters, if you are ever curious of making your own remineraliser.   If you want a bit more control over the parameters you get from Salty Shrimp ... mix it into a plastic water bottle. Fill 1/4 or 1/3 of the bottle with SS GH+ and add RO water. Dissolve the SS GH+ and drip only as much as you need from the bottle for each water change.
