Add shrimp back.

Watch CO2.

That's pretty much it.

Same issue for the same reason happened on my 70 Gal as well.

It will kill shrimp, they act drunk after 1-2 days and then die off in larger no#'s 2-3 days after the 1st treatment. Fire shrimp died off at about 70-80% mortality through the entire treatment. Amano's are less susceptible but will still die.
So you add it for 3 days straight?? The bottle I have says "Every 3 days"
Just checking Im using it on a 29G to try to get rid of Green water, just dosed last night a 9:30pm. I was gonna wait 3 days before redosing, but Im confused now. Should I do it again tonight and follow Toms way or was that a typo maybe?
