I spoke to you regarding them... And you didn't listen.

At this point GH was upped, I added a small piece or coral for calcium. More calcium or is there anything else I should try?
calcium montmorillonite. If you can pickup in little neck, I'll give you a bag to save your shrimp. We can talk shrimp too.

nvladik Eventually I will get to them also!

ThatGuyWithTheFish You should try Supreme Reds. So far, I've been very disappointed with my Fire Reds.

nvladik Cool, thanks. I will add some crushed coral to the tank today.

acitydweller Its a sign that he is molting soon. best to add some calcium asap to ease transition out of the old shell. also ease up on the dosing until the mystery deaths stop... do you dose anything specifically for the shrimp? they need supplements to stay healthy and colorful. trouble happens when they cant source what they need from the environment or foods .

nvladik So some good news this morning. I raised GH and temp by 2 degrees yesterday and no new deaths. So thanks everyone for ideas.

Have another question I need help with. One of the cherries has a very visible white line where the shells connect, is this normal? Crappy iPhone pic, but the vertical line is visible.

Inverts arent so tolerant of csm+b as well.
1/4 tsp once a week. Per full EI, I should be doing 1/4 tsp 3x a week.

nvladik I thought about it, but I doubt it. 3 bps, 2 hours before the lights go on, off 1 hour before lights off, total 6 hours a day. Drop checker barely starts changing color from blue.

sbarbee54 Could just be CO2 posioning, what are you running your CO2 at?
