I would suggest getting a canister filter and underfeeding for a while. All food should be gone within 1 minutes. 50% water change weekly.

It sounds like your water condition is extremely bad.

CO2 absolutely does not kill Amano shrimp. They are very very strong. All ADA tanks have shrimp and CO2, as does mine, with no problems.

I would use a lilly pipe simply for the ease of night time oxygenation. Besides other benefits, that seems already enough.

Thanks for the replies.
I am using an ADA light and ferts. "Brightly K" is potassium, so I will pump and extra 3ml daily and see if it helps. Maybe the warmer water effects the chemical balance.

They are glass and do not distract from the aquarium. Depending on placement they almost disappear.

From your description maybe there is a small problem. The surface agitation may actually increase oxygen and waste CO2 during the day. I say may, depending on the amount of surface movement.

I am afraid it is hard to see, but if you loo]ok carefully the brown coloration is visible. These plants are about 3 months old so I do not think there is any special leaf damage.
