I am so heartbroken I lost my one female Amano Shrimp today. I cannot figure out what happened. Yesterday morning she was fine and this morning...boom...pink and lifeless at the bottom of the tank. She did molt yesterday. I did a 10% water change yesterday, PH always around 7.8, temp consistent at 74, parameters all good. I have 6 neon tetras, 1 Betta, 1 Amano, 2 mystery snails and a nerite in a 10 G well established tank. I feed them pellets as well as a variety of balanced veggies. Any ideas as to what could have happened?

Addendum: just found another half eaten tetra.. 2 in 2 days... down to 4.. tank was ok before I got the neons.....

Just wondering If the neons are getting a little aggressive. I know they normally are not but this is all curious

Neons are known fin-nippers if kept in small numbers or small spaces. So yes, neons can be aggressive.

Is it possible a neon died, and the resulting ammonia spike killed your shrimp?

How has the Betta been lately? It's not unheard of for Bettas to suddenly become very unhappy sharing a tank (particularly when new additions come in).
