Oh man, I'm bummed.......
I nabbed a crayfish from work the other day (came from the feeder tank) ..it was super voracious, active...I put in worms yesterday and it would actually come take it from me. Kept it with the marmorkreb I got from the auction..all seemed okay..they didn't really interact.....
Found her dead (quite ripped apart and eaten) body today..................
I feel so bad! I didnt know he would do that uuuuuugh crayfishhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Well her babies are still alive... and... that extra baby that came with her is still growing. But still man...
I feel your pain.
For the past few months, I just keep losing shrimps constantly...now it's painful and slow because it's like 1-2 a day. It just slowly happens.
I lost 200 CRS in the summer...that happened in 2 weeks. Probably the heat.
12 blue rilis because i'm ignorant thinking shrimps will handle co2 even though they can't
20 pumpkin neo in a new tank, finally with no co2 but still dying...then found it was ferts. ugh
so now, I stopped ferts and co2, and I still lost another 12, only to realize maybe it's my flouish root tabs. i took them out, dumped all the substrate with all the root tabs, cleaned out the tank....discarded the dwarf hairgrass which needs all of the above and replaced it with dwarf sag which will be fine all by it self.
So this morning, I'm down to 10...lost another 2.
There is only one more explanation, the Evolve 4 tank that acitydweller sold me is jinxed. LOL
Keep in mind that i have another similar setup with shrimps in as well, with root tabs and excel added and they are fine. It's the tank!
10 more to go and then I'm done with shrimps and with on with pea puffers.
