Hi! I know this has probably been asked a million times before but my shrimp keep dying and it's truely a mystery and being very new to shrimp keeping I'm hoping someone can help. Sorry this is long, tia! I cycled my 21L tank for 2 months with plants (anubias on driftwood and hair grass with some floating rotala) I use Seachem Prime and Stability. I tested everything and all was fine (we keep fish so I'm not new to water parameters just shrimp) I put in 3 large natives (pictured) and a pack of 10 glass shrimp I ordered from livefish. All of the glass died within the week but the natives (transferred over from my housemates tank) are still thriving and have even shed the other week and grew a little. I feed algae wafers every 3 days and Hikari shrimp cuisine every second. Did a small water change last week (10-15%) and on the weekend put in 2 cherries and 3 glass from an aquarium shop in. One of the cherries is dead and the others except 2 are hiding and I havnt seen them since the first day. I've noticed a few detritus worms on my glass, could it be an oxygen issue? Temp is at 23°c same as housemates tank but the aquarium shop didn't seem to have a heater and livefish sent the glass in bags that arrived cold I floated the bags and let a little of my water in for about 40 mins before setting them free.
Hi Guys, Over the last couple of days I have head some RCS deaths. One I am not sure why and the other one I felt like she was going to die as she could not moult (I could see her shell almost split in 2 at the saddle). All females in this tank are breeding exceptionally well and all other shrimp seem fine. My water parameters are:- 6.6ph0 ammonia0 nitrites10 nitrates200 TDS (a bit high for my liking prefer around 170, so will bring this down slowly) I keep these RCS with my CRS shrimp. So I am just wondering if it is my setup that is causing these issues or just coincidence that these two deaths happened at the same time?
Hi all! I've noticed that in my rili tanks I usually get one or two deaths after a water change. Not every time, but fairly often. This doesn't usually happen in my other tanks which have red, black and blue cherries. Any ideas why this might be happening? I usually wipe down the front panel of my glass, and only change about 10% of the water. Any help would be appreciated!
