Hi! I would love some help with this. I have a moderately planted shrimp tank with about 14 blue dream neocaridina shrimp in it currently. Water parameters: ammonia:0ppm, nitrites: 0ppm, nitrates: 0 ppm, gh: 8 drops, kh: 3 drops, tds: 260, ph: 6.8. The tank had been cycled for a month before adding shrimp (testing every few days to confirm the correct spikes and drops). I added 10 shrimp at first who all survived the first few weeks and became berried fairly quickly. I then added 10 more shrimp and these are the ones who have all been dying off. So far I've only had one shrimp from the original ten die (sadly a berried female....). Every day now for the last few days, I've been losing a shrimp a day (5 deaths now). I don't know what's causing it.... I will say that the ones who are dying seem to be having a hard time shedding their shells which would seem to indicate that my water is too hard but I use RO water with salty shrimp additives and my gh is within the correct parameters for neocaridina... please help!
