The amount of water I change is not large at a time. Maybe 10 to 20 percent and I usually take hours adding water back after taking it out. I have some sensitive fish in the tanks.

I was concerned since the behavior was different than usual and I'm not too familiar with shrimp behavior yet. Normally I would see the shrimp slowly walking around or parked on a plant chomping on something they found, usually algae. Now they are constantly on the move. They aren't darting, but they are swimming around right in front of the fish.
I've noticed some molt since I've gotten them and they've grown considerably.

I'll just keep watching them and learn, but I do want to catch anything wrong before it becomes a disaster.

THanks very much!
