Hi everyone,
I have lost a few tiger shrimp im my 56gal tank for the past few days now.
I noticed that on the shrimp before they die their head portion becoms red. What does this mean. All my levels are in check.

Any ideas?

do you have fish? im assuming so.

The fish may have realized they may be a snack...a living snack.

If that is the case, the fish will pester the shrimp and rupture blood vessels in them creating you 'red markings' on the head. Ive seen it done before. Almost like internal contusions in the head.

creepy.

just a thought.
