Ramshorns & MTS are suffering but Shrimp & Daphnia are ok???
The tank is a
- 10gal heavily planted w/ val, dwarf sag, & giant duckweed
- agaronite substrate
- Stocked with least killi's, MTS, ramshorns, cherry shrimp, & some daphnia surviving in the substrate
- I used to dose PPS Pro daily but have backed off since this issue
- I typically do a 50% water change and trim monthly with hard water from my well.
Everything in this tank has been healthy for over a year since setup but over the last month the MTS have nearly died out and the ramshorns numbers are dropping. The MTS I do find alive are always held up in their shells. Shrimp and fish are acting normal.
I'm looking at test kits but don't even know what to look for that would cause this. This particular MTS colony is important to me and I want to save it. Thanks in advance.
