Thanks!
I was looking all over, but once I finally decided which two kinds to get, only one place had both... that I saw anyway. ShrimpUSA.

I didn't expect them to be so active! They're swimming all over the place.
Cooped up too long in shipping maybe? haha

Cool Shrimp.

Next thing you know, you will have turned your 180 saltwater into a shrimp farm.

Well, i've got good news ... and bad news.

The good news is my blue rili shrimp are all (9) still alive! And one has eggs again. Will see if she holds or drops.
The bad news is that all ten of my orange tigers are dead.
It just happened one by one, almost every day.

Any idea why this might be? New tank syndrome? Bad batch?
Parameters in my sig below.

btw... Anyone deal with shrimp usa before? I still have not gotten a refund for my one doa blue rili. It's only 5 or 6 bucks but still.

Sorry to hear about those

I'd assume bad parameters, they can only hold on a couple weeks in bad conditions before biting it.

Sorry I'm on tapatalk, so I can't see it.

But I can take a look later. Did you measure TDS?

oh ok, cool.
TDS of all my water before going in the tank is zero. It runs through my RO/DI.
I use amazonia aquasoil.
pH 7.0
Temp 75
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10
GH 89.5 ppm
KH 3 dKH

And fwiw, they started "biting it" within a couple days.

found another rili holding eggs.

Would still like to hear some input on parameters and why I may have lost all tangerine tigers.

adjusted. 89.5ppm / 17.86 to get 5.01 dGH

How was the water remineralzed? directly in the tank or separately then added to the tank.

Not sure how I would change it?
I'm using RO/DI water with zero TDS (and this is after going through a whole-house water softener) so I can only assume this number comes from the AquaSoil?

Using the API test kit... the KH took 3 drops to change the color and the GH took 5 or 6 drops to change the color. Am I reading it wrong?
