    Default Shrimplets is dying.

    I have a 20L shrimp tank with Rilis and cherries. Last week I bought 20 CRS and 10 Sakuras and acclimatised them correctly and introduced them in to my shrimp tank. It was my only well cycled tank (about 5 months). Suddenly my Rili shrimplets were going to die one by one. I read that may be occurring due to some bacterial infection. Is it possible? I ordered Furanol plus from pet shop and I am going to get it tomorrow. Is it OK to treat shrimps on the basis of assumptions? Only 1 CRS is dead during this time.

    Water parameter which I measured from CRS transport bag is:
    PH-7,2
    KH-4
    GH-7
    TDS-225
    NH3-0
    NO2-0
    NO3-1

    My own shrimp tank has parameters:
    PH-7,4
    KH-3
    GH-5
    TDS-175
    NH3-0
    NO2-0
    NO3-5

    I post photo of last dead shrimp.

    Does the transparent section of your living Rili shrimps looks cloudy? Bacteria infection or unhealthy shrimp exhibit cloudy meat symptom.

    Also, please let us know your feeding, dosing and maintenance regime.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    It is hard to say but to me living shrimp’s body doesn’t look cloudy. I feed them Dennerle shrimpfood once every other day. They have an almond leaf and time to time nettle leaf.
    This week I changed water about 10% every day. Usually I changes water about 30-40% ones per week.
    I dose Nano Ferropol 24 Moss as instructed 2 drops per day.

    Today I started to treat them with Furanol. Everything is normal now, but I afraid of Ammonia spike. Is it OK if after 5 day of treatment I put them straight away in to other aquarium?

    I post one photo of living Rili too.

    The body is clear, thus not infection.

    Not sure it is advisable for you to dose Furanol without knowing the problem.

    Do you have the content of what is in Nano Ferropol? I'm not familiar with it.

    Usually I changes water about 30-40% ones per week. <--- This is very excessive. You should only do large water change once every month or two months.

    Do you see a lot of breeding going on recently?

    This only slightly cloudy, not as intense as bacteria infection should be. Slightly cloudy usually caused by stress or change of water condition.

    Thank you to reply. I already started to treat them and want to know is it safe to introduce them right after treatment into new tank?

    How do you treat them separately? Are using tank water or new water?

    I treat them all together in my 20L tank. But I would like to move CRS into new 160L tank after treatment.
    Beside that some CRS and Sakuras is missing. No body's no nothing.

    Let it treat for a week and after that, run activated carbon in the filter to remove all the medication for 3 days. Once that are done, you can put in the new shrimps.

    Please take note on the activated carbon that you need to water log it for at least 2 or 3 days. Or else, it will rob the O2 and may release some acid out and kill shrimps.
