Does anyone have any ideas as to why my shrimp keeping dying? It's really puzzling. There are only 2 Amanos and 2 RCS left. My nitrates usually fluctuate between 10-30ppm . No nitrites or ammonia. I've been slowly raising my gH by adding extra calcium and magnesium over the past 2 weeks and now it hovers around 5 degrees. I realize thats still low but it's a lot better than the 1dgH it was at before. I dose plantex, but I've read the amount of copper in that isn't a big deal. I add about 5mL of excel every day. I can't think of anything else.

How did you end up getting rid of the hair algae from the start of the tank?

One weekend I removed all of the plants, cleaned the hair algae off of them, scrubbed it off the rocks with a toothbrush, wiped the walls, vacuumed the substrate and did a ~60% WC. Then I replanted everything and ordered enough dwarf hair grass to fill up the tank so I had more plant mass. It never really came back though. The reason it took hold in the first place was because my pH probe went bad and my regulator wasn't pumping in enough CO2. I replaced the pH probe and the problem seems to be solved.
