I agree, it certainly sounds like molts.

I leave the molts in the tank as that is just part of the process for shrimp. However, I always remove bodies (if I find them in time) on the chance that...

Yeah, those sure look wine red to me.

Is there any chance that your friend was adding what he believed to be PRL shrimp to his colony over time, and maybe someone he bought from mislabeled and...

This is probably one of those cases that a picture of the suspected Wine Reds would help immensely. Unless I am mistaken, there shouldn't be any viable way that you could get Wine Reds from a PRL...

Regarding the water, I would probably re-fill the tank about 80% full of the old water, and then the remaining 20% with new matched water. In essence, about a 20% water change. I don't know how a...

Nope, sounds to me like you are dialed in. Now you just wait. Should be about 30 days or so from when they actually got berried and you should have little ones running around.

If I understand your question correctly, you want to move all of the shrimp out to the new tank - even the new ones after they are dropped. If that is indeed the case, then I would definitely do it...

If you are just really wanting to boost up the TDS, you could use Mosura TDS Up. I find that a little bit goes a pretty long way.

I use 1/8th of a teaspoon of Mosura TDS Up in conjunction with...

Yeah, I do.

So, I use 1 tsp of GH+/KH+ to 5 gallons of RO water, and I get a TDS of 180, and a GH of 6. This has been working well for me.

They can do well with a range of parameters, but most people find that they do the best with a GH of around 5, and a KH between 0-2. Also, 75 might be just a bit warm. Generally, folks shoot for 73...

I've become a big fan of those MarinePure bio balls, and with those in a 2215 on a 20H, I think you'd be really happy. If it (2215) fits great in your setup, I wouldn't hesitate.

I run the Eheim 2213 filters on my 20 gal long shrimp tanks, and it works really well. I make my own spray bars (just buy rigid tubing from Tap Plastics and drill) so I can control the flow. I...

Pretty much only to take meds out at the end of treatment. A lot of us do use Purigen in our higher end tanks.

I wouldn't change a thing. You have no shrimp losses, they are starting to berry up, and you want to change a parameter that is fluctuating by .4? Depending on how you are measuring pH, the readings...

Sadly, with it being her first time, she ended up dropping the eggs. Bummer. I keep waiting for her to berry up again. Just need the patience.
