      Hmmm went to the fish store to take a look at their livestock of crystals.
      Did not like what i saw, lots of dead ones in the tank and some had the creepy planaria in it??!!?! (This slimy friend still creeps me out)
      Decided to go with a guy that takes his shrimps from a breeder. My yellow neos came from him and i remembered the water it came in was good.
      He sent me a photo of the guys.
      Hope all goes well.
      Picking them up on monday.

      Have a read of this in the Health and Care forum.   Is it similar to Chitinolytic bacterial disease or Rust disease? There are some suggested treatments in that article. Carvacrol oregano oil might be a good place to start with as treatments go.

      Hi Ladies and Gents,  I need some help. Some of the shrimp in my PRL tank are starting to loose their colour and go translucent. I noticed this morning that the shell of one of them has changed to a light pink. He still has the thick white shell, its just the white part is turning pink. I'll attach a photo later on today. I know pink means internal bacterial infection but his "insides" look fine, its just his shell. By the time I went to get my phone to take a photo he ran to the other end of the tank ... typical. My water prams  Ph: 6.6 Gh: 6  Kh: 0  TDS: 241  Temp: 22-24 degrees  I  know my Ph and my TDS are a little high so I've been lowering it slowly over the last few weeks. I didn't want to change it too much and shock them. I do a 10% water change weekly and drip my new water in. I use a mixture of RO and tap water. I have fluval stratum in the tank and also have Indian almond leaves, subwassertang moss and cholla wood. I have green walls for them and I use a sponge filter.  Is this a Ph problem or is this bacterial? I've attached a photo of one of the females that have changed colour and who have gone translucent.  I appreciate all your help!

      I can’t get another picture to upload. I’m not sure how to make it smaller. But it’s a raised red circular growth that is getting bigger. 
    • jayc
      Can hardly see anything except for the silhouette of a shrimp. Shine a torch on it while taking a picture.   But without seeing it, I can take a guess that it might be Rust disease. Yes, that's contagious. And have you read the sticky in the Health subforum?
