    So I just found a neo dead in my 8 gal nano. It was clearly because of a failed molt (white line). But I don't know why it would have failed, I see molts in my tank every other day.. all the other shrimp are doing just fine and I've not had problems before. Why is this happening?
  2. Planted Nano Tanks
    So I was away for a couple of days and when I came back my apisto had died. All other inhabitants in this 12 gallon tank were fine. So what I did was that I took him out, I did a water change, normal maintenance - cleaning the gravel/substrate and so on. I also used my test kits for NO2 and NO3...

    Hi everyone! This is my first post on here. I've had a fully planted shrimp tank for a few years now. I have times of total chaos, when shrimp are dying left and right, and times of relative calm, where they are fine for months at a time. Recently I added a Azoo Mignon Filter 60 to my low...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey all, I started with 3 RCS and now I have about 40-50 in my 15 gallon. All my parameters are great. Temp is 76-80 degrees and never changes. I add little water to the tank weekly because I have no lid so a lot of the water evaporates. All my shrimp look super red and are healthy. I'm on my...

    I need a new regulator. I have a post body and tank, I also have little money. The story behind it, for comic relief: At the beginning of the year, I bought a regulator from a guy off craigslist for $30 who said it worked fine. It has never worked fine. In fact, it has worked everything but...

    Hey guys, recently I got a shipment of 46 (40 regular order) of these shrimps. I have found 5 deaths already and tested my paramters. 0 nitrates, ammonia, and nitrites alone with a 6.6 ph. I got them shipped to me on Thursday which was 3ish days ago and all the shrimps are big adult sized but no...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I was shrugging off the first two because I figured they just got old or something, but after the third I'm getting irritated. My shrimp are dying and I'm not sure why. Temp is ~76 tds ~385 ammonia and nitrates ~0 gH at around 11 degrees 10g tank cycled for several months, shrimp been in for...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Or red... bodied? I found a few red planaria ganging up on one of my adult male shrimp. The shrimp is paralyzed, and I don't know if he will recover, but I have moved him into his own container and dosed the tank with fenbendazole. Turns out, a lot of my mysterious shrimp deaths are probably...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a 10g planted tank with about ~25 RCS and 1 Oto. Saturday I did a 20% pwc as per weekly maintenence. Sunday I did about 20% battling BBA. I also boiled the driftwood. This morning I was horrified to find 7 red cherries dead. 5 were freshly molted. I found 1 more struggling during...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Sunday, I got about 6 RCS. They seemed a little antsy when I first introduced them to the tank. After a while a lot of them would hide except for one that was more brave than the others. That one is still alive. I came home last night and added some java moss I got from a friend for free. After...

    For the last few weeks I've been losing 1-3 shrimp (PFRs and OEBTs) per week in my medium light, no CO2 20g high tank. I've been trying to find the culprit without much luck so I figured I'd ask. Water Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate = 0 Ph = 7.6 Phosphate = 5 TDS = 315 Fish & shrimp 8 green neon...

    Hello, I have a cycled, 40 litre heavily planted (java moss, java fern, moss ball & anunbias) nano tank with an eheim powerball sponge filter, heater and thermometer. In the tank are 3 guppies, 1 zebra otto and 6 cardinal tetras, nuisance snails and until about 2 weeks ago, a thriving cherry...

    So about 3 months ago I bought 12 Ember Tetras for my cycled 10 gallon tank. I lost one the first week...it was a tiny little thing and just didn't seem right from the beginning....never really ate either. Then last week I did a water change and some trimmings and accidentally didn't plug the...
  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Man, how disheartening. Lost 6 last night. I blame myself and I watched them die. It was one of two things. I abruptly stopped EI dosing and DIY CO2 in that tank on Saturday, but I also sprayed for roaches maybe three hours before the die off. Only other fish were 3 otos and thankfully they...

  16. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi there. I started my first (20 gallon long) tank in September and put in a gourami in November. Altogether, it comes out to 10 fish and some ghost shrimp. Some good grasses, moss, and ferns. No fatalities or major issues until... My poor Gogo was dead at the bottom of the tank on Thursday...

    So my female betta was eating cherry shrimp. So I took her out. I have been seeing exoskeletons every day. Like 3. Per day! And shrimp numbers seem to be slowing down. There are LESS THAN 20 shrimp in this tank and I am seeing exoskeletons daily. I don't get it. I don't think these are shrimp...

    Maybe you guys can help me figure out what happened. I'm pretty upset about this because the Endler's are my favorite part of my 2.5 gallon. Tank stats: Size: 2.5 gallon Lighting: 10 W CF Temp: Around 72-74 F (my 10W Marineland heater sucks) Substrate: ADA Amazonia I&II Ferts: Excel line except...

    A few weeks ago I was doing a lot of water changes in my 120 because I was fighting blue green algae. Using tap water and Amquel. One day when I got home from work all three of my clown loaches were dead. The other fish in the tank seemed fine. Sunday I did a 20% water change in a 20xh that...
