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.

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
