    Yes. However for a lot of the CRS food are high in protein, therefore look for different type of foods some with high and some with low proteins.

I started to see a lot of dead. 1/2 a day what got me more nuts was I had. A lot of berried females and they ate , and died as well so I did a test . Didn't want to because I knew maybe what my happen , so water change clean and tested used veggies First,yum yum ,,, thans days past tried the food , and berried dead, couple adults dead .... Did it again without water change temp good water still good. same results ,,,,, dnt know if Im paranoid or if It's a coinencedense . I dnt think I can mention brand and I dnt like to bad mouth no one , so now I am. Pretty sure it's what it is so it goes in the dump... But is there a food that jus specific for neocaridina strains ?, There is a lot for caridina , I thought that it was okay to use such foods ,, I may be wrong mahalos for ur time

    Actually, I used to feed my PFR (higher grade RCS), red rili and blue rili with CRS food too and no issues. I tried almost every renowned brand in the market before so I think I should have tried yours.

    Usually too much protein associated death is caused by molting issue. The shell is not soft enough for them to grow and they have problem molting. End up, they over-grown their shell and crushed to death by their own shell. However, it should not kill them within a day.

    What's your pH and gH level?

    Too bad you are located in US, if you are in APAC, I can pass you some of my homemake food when I travel to that country.

    No worries.

    I posted something on pH and GH relation somewhere recently. You may want to refer to it and compare your water parameter. I have been through your current state, all parameters look good according to all articles, at the end still fail. At the end I figured out this pH and GH relationship and calcium depletion issue in old tank.

    Yes. Due to the amount of tanks and shrimps I have, it is more cost effective. Furthermore, I can control over the ingredient used.
