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?
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)
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...
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
Hello, a week ago I started a 10g Walstad Aquarium. There has been good plant growth and a little bit of algae so Yesterday I added 3 Amano shrimp. One has since disappeared and the other 2 are laying on there sides and occasionally moving. I have done a 50% water change with no change in...
