    All but one of my cherries were boiled to death. Yup, boiled. Tank was losing water, figured I'd fill today, water was too hot. All the other shrimp died. Found 1 tiny baby alive.

    Oh no, that sounds terrible! I always worry that my tanks will overheat when I am at work and I will come home to ..... cooked fish!
    It is amazing that one survived, hope he does well.

    I found a second one alive. Too bad as I had tons of new babies. The shrimp were huge as I've had them over a year. They are in an unheated tank now.

    How is the tank doing, now? Have you added any new RCS?

    Oh, the cherries all died. I re-did the tank w/ ghost shrimp. There's a thread in the ghost shrimp forum.
