Yea. kH is ok being around zero, not really sure what that does for shrimp. But there has to be some GH or they won't be able to molt correctly. That may have been your problem all along?

Check for copper ... that will kill off shrimpies fast too.

You said one looked cloudy, could be bacterial too - I just lost most of one colony this past week, hoping to pull out some survivors with treating with maracyn 2 ... but not holding out much hope.

Really good idea to get all the basic tests for your water, and maybe check the TDS as well?

I don't know what I've been thinking but I've got Cherry's and Amano's in my other tank so it's not the water it's just coincidence that this happened, the tank just isn't cycled properly.

Maybe there is something in the tank that none of us has thought to check out yet?

I think it's just New Tank Syndrome and a impatient old man that hasn't learned a thing in 52 years, but it's official there is no life in my nano and the last Cherry was pulled out late last night, the pond snails seem to be fine. I'll try again in a while and I now have a Ammonia test kit to check and I'll get some RO ready to go.

The plants a growing nicely and are even pearling without C02, Crypts, H.pinnatifida, Najas, and S.porto velho all have new leaves and the Mayaca is growing like crazy plus it's turning white as it uses all the Fe in the soil. I trimmed and did a little re-scaping after this photo and there is a C. affinis in the back that was an auction buy that had no roots at all, I just moved it to the front and it has 2 new leaves and 2 new roots about an inch long.


Pearls without C02, not too shabby. They must be fueled by dead Cherry's.

You can see some of the munched on growth near the bottom and above is all new.

Bummer, hope you have more luck next time. I had my cherries in an uncycled, untested, cruddy neglected tank with no water changes for 4 months. I didn't even bother acclimating them. Had my first berry within a week and they bred and grew great until insect larvae destroyed them.

Najas sp. 'Roraima' is a nice delicate plant for a small tank, the plant in the photo is around 2 inches tall but it is nice, hopefully it will get some red color in this tank and it is doing well so far.

Love the setup! Are you doing any fertilizing for this or any fertilizer tabs? Just curious as I haven't had the best of luck with my 3 gallon.

Very little but about once a month with a whopping 3 ml of macro solution, 2 ml of Micro solution, and 1.5 ml of Fe, I have solution made at standard EI amounts but the Fluval Stratum is almost good enough for a low tech tank.

But we are having a club meeting this Saturday and getting a group order from Invertebrates by Msjinkzd, I'm getting 10 Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, unfortunately they are all juveniles but she has quoted on her site (very high grade) and I trust Rachael 100% so I'm sure they will grow to be beautiful, lets just hope I get at least I don't get all of one sex.

The tank looks just about the same and I will update again after I get my new shrimp. I did remove the Najas but I'll put some back in later and I trimmed hard but I cut the tread on the Fissidens by accident and it was not attached good and some fell off, but it will bounce back. But for the clean I removed all the plants and most of them had roots of 2 or 3 inches so I had to trim the roots too.

I just returned from the club meeting and got my new Fire Red Cherry shrimp from Rachael, I ordered 10 but she gave me 18 by accident but some were super small, take a look.

Congo line!


Juvinile!


I also added a couple stems of Lysimachia nummularia v. 'aurea'

Awesome looking shrimp. And if they are from her, they will be beastly.
