Nitrates play part for bacterial infection? Shrimp immune systems are not like our own. There more primordial. They can't developed new antibodies to fight off virul and bacterial infections like us. They just die. I have had one oebt die today from one. And probably will have two more before the trend of the week. So I'm using a crap load of ial and alder cones.

And the yellow on the pic dead... Sigh...

Gonna buy seachem paraguard, hope it could solve the problem...
For now use all probiotic

IT's really too late to realize the problem,
Maybe 50++ death shrimp, up to 1 month
If i could solve this problem

I could move foward and try more expensive shrimp

I have 6 of them like the one in Soothing Shrimp's pic. I isolated them and they have been living just fine without treatment most for at least 3 months, a couple of them for 7 months. I took 2 of them out last month and treated them with maracyn 2 and it did absolutely nothing for or to them. I returned them to their tank after the treatment. Seems hard to believe that a shrimp can live this long if it is a bacterial infection. And at least in my case all of them are males.

There is the harmless Super White Tiger parasite that only affects males (Okayama Parasite), but very rare in the US. An acquaintance of mine (Zane) was working on breeding a white cherry this way, but no one wanted to buy a shrimp that had a parasite- even if it was pretty and harmless. *shrugs*

I'm afraid that is a hard one since often the shell may be opaque. Look for broken antennae.
Just 1 case frommy black tiger, broken with orange antennae
but now the shrimp is fine with normal antennae

Right now i'm treating the tank with probiotik, while waiting for seachem paraguard from ebay

In my case from 40 yellow fire
70% female 30% male

Now just 1 female and 8 male
Definitely strange...
