    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...

    Hey all, I woke up this morning to find 1 of my 4 Crystal Red Shrimp dead. I could only see the head remaining which was being eaten by one of my Darwin Algae Eater shrimp (australian amano, of which i have 3 in the tank). There was also half a molt shell beside it, it seems as if the died...

    So I came home tonight to this discovery....I don't know what happened. I am new to the shrimp keeping world, but this doesn't seem normal.

    Had my first death last night, got a batch of tigers, acclimated them the right way, popped them in the tank and everything seemed fine. Came back later in the evening and had a dead one lying upside down on the bottom of the tank. His color was good, didn't see any damage or anything wrong...
