So I lost 3 shrimp today - two out of my 8 Blue Velvet Shrimp and my one Blue Dream. I don't know why or what the cause was although my guesses involve either overfeeding or possibly water shock from a small water change. My parameters are as follows: GH: 5-6 KH: 5 PH: 7.6 Nitrite: 0 ppm Nitrate: 0.25 ppm Water temp: 68-78 degrees F My water is tinged green and I have 4 live plants (including a Java fern), a moss ball, an Indian Almond Leaf, and a Rock in the tank itself as well as one small snail. I got a siphon pump today to be able to do easier water changes. How would one go about water changes in an area that is a bit colder than many other places? I started using cold water after making a mistake on using hot water which could have been a problem... but now that things are a bit more in place I want to try and get stuff settled. If I got more shrimp: how long should I drip acclimate? What would be the best way to use tap water for water changes when I only have one heater? Or would I want to use distilled water? How often should I feed the shrimp? I keep reading all sorts of different tips and views. Is it okay and normal for shrimp to hide under the rock? I have some (4) pretty small and pretty transparent shrimp that I haven't seen since I introduced them into my tank. I don't want to move my rock and find dead shrimp underneath...Maybe I should just give up? I don't want to but maybe I should figure out what is up with my tank first. Because I have no clue why this is happening. Is it my Nitrate and Nitrite levels?
Hi I wonder if someone could help with a bit of confusion I have regarding Blue verities of Neocaridina and the gene pool. This is what I have so far and not sure if it correct. 1) Black/Chocolate Cherries will produce Blue Diamond. 2) Blue Diamonds will produce higher grade Blue Cherries 3) Rili will produce Blue Dreams from there I'm not sure where Blue velvets fit in. What type of Rili will give you Blue Dreams cheers
