Ghost Shrimp dropping like flies!

    I have 2 ghost shrimp with my new tank who have done fine for the month I've had them. This weekend however they both died!!! :'( The 4 neons in thier seem to be doing fine.

    Getting off the subject...it's interesting how the shrimp loose thier transparency when they die...I wonder what the scientific explanation is to that one.

    I hate to see the shrimp go, but if I replace them I'd hate to see those ones die too. I take it they're not very hardy. Anyway, what suggestions would anyone have for bottom/algea eaters for a 5 g tank w/ 4 neons????

    Thanks ;D

    A snail might be another option for you for algae control. Ghost shrimp are like that. It's probably nothing you have done, they just die for no apparent reason.
