Sorry to hear it. I would think soaking the wood in a bucket would remove anything in it. There can't be that much in the wood.

I came home to pull all the dead out and saw about 10 blue bees and 3 yellow Neos. I added a bit of prime due to some of dead being sorry...juicy. I am doing a wc and will watch the remaining few shrimp.

sorry for your loss. at least now you can have a fresh start. cardinals are pretty easy IMO. ecocomplete plus tap water and they thrive.

Wow man. I am truly sorry to hear about that. I am forcing my gf to read this thread, as she doesn't understand the ramifications behind spraying things near tanks. She has been an angel about heeding my word, but she mocks me for it lol.

Anyways. Maybe these remaining shrimp are like bacteria after not completing a complete antibiotics dose.

They come back even stronger.

Best wishes..

Thanks… It is truly heartbreaking to have gone through all that time and work to care for them just to have it almost completely wiped out in a matter of hours and there is nothing you can do to stop the deaths. Out of the few survivors there is a berried female that only had two eggs on her. I don’t know if they where hatching at the time the apocalypse happen, but she is fanning the hell out to them. I am going to try and save the remaining few blue bees and yellows, but I can’t be 100% sure they are going to make it.
