    The larger one has prime though

    Ok I think this is it...

    Is this the product on amazon? Sorry if you sent a link but it’s not showing up for me...

    I wasn’t worried about price. I just think my LFS has equilibrium so that would have been easier for me than ordering it.

    Will seachem equilibrium work for my water?

    Thanks. I’m not super good at hardscapes so I just skipped one

    Yeah I have an RO system (actually can do RODI for my reef system) maybe I’ll try that. I read somewhere that prime can be toxic to shrimp if combined with something else. But honestly I’m Clueless. I’ll try RO water though any links for where I can get the product to mineralize the water.

    So the amanos died a few days ago. I told my LFS and they gave me a ghost shrimp just to see if it would live. I just found it dead. I have like 15 bladder snails going around the tank, and they are doing just fine. Any ideas as to what might kill a shrimp but not a snail?

    I have a lot of cover, do you still think to let the shrimp populate first and then add fish? Or would it be ok to add fish first. I didn’t think endlers were super predatory.

    So I took my water into my LFS and they tested my PH at 7.5 my KH at 4 and my GH at 5 I agree though the TDS does seem low. If I add crushed coral at this point will it still raise my PH? I don’t think over a 7.5 is very great... (I plan on endlers and Neocaridina colonies)

    I got 100 as a TDS reading.

    Amano Shrimp Dying

    Well, I’ve seem to lost my TDS meter so I’ve ordered a new one (glad you mentioned that so I’m not missing it later) and here’s a photo of the weird behavior. They will sit around like this for a few minutes twitching it’s swimmerets and then swim around and just fine for a little and then does...

    Amano Shrimp Dying

    No I don’t but I can check later I have a TDS meter for when I’m making RODI water for my saltwater tanks.
  14. NPC

    Amano Shrimp Dying

    Well, they are swimming around now, so maybe the water change helped... however sometimes they just stop on the ground and kinda curl up and just push with their back legs for a couple minutes. It’s pretty weird. I guess it’s better than lying on the ground though

    Alright, thanks for the help.
