I can only tell you my experience.... I change the water 2 times a week (25%) in all of my shrimp tanks. All of the species breed very well for me and I do not think that there are any negative effects of doing a water change. However, you can definitely cause problems with doing a water change if you do not do it properly... i.e. trying to mix hot and cold to match tank temp...not using dechlorinator...etc.I wanted to get this clear.. Its stuck in my mind
Does waterchanges decease the Shrimp population, Im saying this because
During my summer i was in china when i came back, I saw cherry everywhere Roaming the tanks..
Now i dont as much, it seems like They Die during water changes and stuff
but i dont see any Body.. maybe for cherry shrimps the dirty the tank that More they breed.
I have otos and Amano shrimps thats all and Cherry
Can anyone Clarify this?
