Red Ring Help


I'm new to Shrimp and got some blue dream shrimp yesterday. Two of them have died with this red ring. I'm unable to find any information on what it is and what to do. Any help would be great. I included a picture of the second shrimp.

TDS 250
PH 7
GH 8
KH 3-4
Ammonia and Nitrite 0
Nitrate 5pmm

Tank Mates
Mystery Snails
Octocinclus Catfish.

I've seen that in blue shrimp that died many times. I think the organs just discolor after death and turn the thorax orange, rather than this being an indication of how they died. My best advice is frequent partial water changes and unplug your heater if you have one. Sorry to hear about this.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
