RCS random death woes
I've an aquarium set up a year or more ago. It crashed about six months ago from neglect when I changed jobs... I think someone put in some chlorinated tap water to fill it back up.
It's set up with eco-complete, compressed CO2,dwarf hair grass, hygra, java moss, dwarf sword grass etc.
Randomly my ottos died, flying foxes, Red cherry shrimp, etc. Guppies stopped breeding, shrimp stopped berrying.
Plants flourish like crazy. Nipped plants oxygenate like crazy, but there's not much for pearling like before.
Water tests perfect for nitrite, ammonia and nitrate.
Algae has been a FIGHT. Hair algae and staghorn now.
Water fleas are doing great on the riccia.
Had a massive snail explosing with no food for them... they eat the dead shrimp.
Shrimp randomly die in the numbers lately. If it keeps up, I'm afraid I wont have any left!
Food is Nutrafin Max, Spirulina wafers.
I've tried to find out if it's the food, but when I stop feeding, they die too. They seem to go weeks without food fine, but some still randomly die...
right now like 2+- per day... so I'm stuck as to what it is.
