Ok- so this is my second go at attempting to keep cherry shrimp. The first time I got shrimp, I received about 30. Within a little over a week- all but one shrimp died. During that timeframe I did a considerable amount of research to make sure that wouldn't happen again. I switched water conditioner over to Prime, and I started doing water changes with RO water remineralized with Salty Shrimp KH/GH.
In the meantime, I got a couple of ottos to help fight some brown algae my tank got.
After several weeks, I decided I was ready for more shrimp so I went ahead and got 30 more from two different sources just in case the water param change was too high from one of them.
I decided to drip acclimate substantially longer this go around than I did before just to be on the safe side so I drip acclimated for ~8-10 hours on both batches.
A few days later, I've now pulled out probably 10-15 dead shrimp already. I can't seem to figure out what's going on and I can't find my problem anywhere else on the internet so I have decided to make my first forum post asking for help.
I know you'll want all the water/tank parameters so I'll post them below...
PH-7.2-7.6 (CO2 change)
Fert: Easy Green, Seachem Iron
Thank you in advance!!!
PS: I attached a picture and video but this is my first post so I'm not sure if it worked or not. If not let me know and I can try again...
