    When drastic water parameter changes, the shrimp will lose colour.

    Give them another another 2 weeks and see how it goes.

    Avoid adjust the pH too high. The higher the pH, the more nutrients will precipitate, and ammonia will be formed more easily.

    Hi, after 2 weeks, the sprinkler survival rates have definitely been much higher! However I do realise the continued lose of colours of my adult females. I use to have them in would dark red, whereby the saddle was hardly visible. Now, after molding 1 week, them have turned kinda transparent and I'm able to see the saddle very clearly. Is that a symbol of something?

    Seems like a sign of not enough nutrients.
