Hi, welcom back!

Hold your head up, parasites generally take quite a bit of time to actually kill off the fish allowing you plenty of time to cure the fish. It just takes a horribly long time to totally get rid of them.

I don’t think so it’s fine for shrimp.

Thank you so much everyone! You’ve made me feel a lot better about not being around for a couple of days I did a 50% water change yesterday and another 30% today just in case it’s the parameters out a bit that is causing them to rub as I read that too much ammonia can do it - there’s no sign of any parasites externally - no ich or yellow or white fluff or worms attached. I have a new test kit on the way - stupidly forgot it would be bankholiday ordering. Will test when as soon as I am back if it has arrived.
