Bad luck

skar

Hey everyone.
I've had bad luck with these guys.
I have one in the mail coming soon to try again.
I've removed purigen just matrix and sponge.
I've lowered the temp to 79 f.

I'm not for sure what went south before.
It's a mature tank. Successfully keep cherry shrimp, amono shrimp, dwarf cray.

I know they are filter feeders.
Anything I'm not getting right let me know.
Thank you.

Bamboo shrimp!

You can target feed them with a turkey baster/syringe with a shrimp food formula or something else, feeding these guys seems to be what bamboozles most.

Yes bamboo shrimp.

I've had two pass on me through the years.
Both times they show good color and even successful molts.
Then for whatever reason they seem to pass.

First one I don't think was eating enough.
2nd one is a mystery to me.

Yes I do realize the feeding routine.
Wondering if there is another puzzle piece I'm missing ?

Thank you
