So, while seating at my desk, one of the amano shrimp launched herself out of the tank! I went to find her, under the desk, and saw one of the missing rasboras. I was able to scoop her up and put in her back in. She's clinging to one of the floaters. The lid in back on!

I had just completed a partial water change about an hour earlier. Other than dechlor, I don't treat the water. Not sure what the problem might be, but the water does smell "fishy" coming out of the faucet for the past week or so.

I picked up some bottled RO water at the store, and will do another partial water change. Maybe even 40%.

Is there anything I need to do/add to the RO for the shrimp?
