Co2 Effect shrimp activity?


I have home made co2 for plants and I noticed for the last week as it was winding down and 2 days it wasnt in there the shrimp seemed much more active is this a coincidence?

CO2 is no good for shrimp tanks, unless you are really experienced with shrimp and no how to handle it. 99% of the people keeping more than just your general RCS do not use CO2 in there shrimp tanks.

Because the huge PH swings, lack of oxygen in the tank for shrimp. You can gas them and kill them all.
