I was worried that I hadn't seen all of the shrimp at once since the day I introduced them, so I removed the driftwood in attempt to find them. One amano and one diamond shrimp were both gone - I searched thoroughly and have no idea what could have become of them. In addition, the larger remaining amano shrimp has a whitish tail, could this be a parasite? This one had just molted overnight, so is this colour difference normal? I have attached a photo, sorry its not great but I don't have anything better than my phone to take a picture with at the moment.

I went to a couple of LFSs and I can't find any Least Killifish. I did however find some dwarf ricefish which I am considering adding in a few weeks. Anyone have experience with these in a tank with shrimp? Also, can celestial danios be kept in a tank with 6.6 pH?
