Hi all,

 

I was taking a few shots of my Neos and noted a hole in this gals shell, it’s on both sides. Anyone seen this before? 

 

I rescaped this nano with ‘Pisces Sugar White’ aquarium sand, which has been leaching TDS and buffering the PH down. I have been using RO waste for my PWC’s. Should I be adding some coral to my HOB to buffer back up?

 

I was surprised to my params so acidic, although I had noted some TDS leach a few weeks back. 

Params: 

PH:~5

TDS :~450

KH:1

GH: 17

Acidic water does not do that.

Apparently it is a genetic defect. Cull it to the cull tank.

Don't let it breed.

 

On the pH, yes some coral chips for long term stability of pH.

Thanks mate. In she goes. Curious as to why she only started displaying this recently?

      We really need to know the water parameters before we can give you advice. Ideally, you should have taken a reading of the original water parameters the shrimp came in. And compared it to your own tank parameters. Otherwise how would you know an hour and a half of drip acclimating is enough. The water in your tank can be on the opposite direction to the water the shrimp came in.

      OK so I bought 50 cherry shrimp on Thursday  December 13.  I drip accumulated them for bout 1 and a half hours during the drip I losted 1. The next day I saw two molt in the tank. On Saturday I saw 2 dead shrimps and about 3 more molt, Sunday more molts no death. Today Monday I saw another dead one should I be worry r is it normal for some to die off?  The tank is 29*18*18  40 gallons and have being up an running since last year with a couple guppies but now it's a shrimp only tank with mts, I don't know the parameters of the water I'm waiting for a master test kit but might get it this week or next

      Yep today i did a wc using tap water like what our guru jayc suggested.
      I also squeezed the sponge from the filter in the pail into the new tank. Topped up to the brim of the tank with abit of water from the pail as i did a wc there(the pail) as well.

      I have put an advert in the 'for sale' section so someone may want free shrimp locally, however it is a bit of a needle in a haystack but I would rather give them away than kill them!!!!!¬ Hope your new tank is cycling nicely. Simon
