Rcs excessive molting?
I recently set up my first tank, planted it, and went through the fishless cycle. Then I got about 80 rcs. They have been in there for about a week. For the last few days I have found about 10 shells a day from molting. I've read that excessive molting means something in the water parameters is askew. I've been testing daily with the api master kit & am getting healthy results, 0ppm NH3, 0ppm NO2, & 5ppm NO3. I did a pwc today to bring the NO3 down. Ph is stable @ about 7.5. Any advice? Are they just stressed from shipping & new tank environment? Thanks-
