    Hi,

    I am interested in crystal red shrimps for three years.

    My tank features; 130 liter, akadama bottom, canister filter with eheim substat pro and a lot of plants.
    My water parameters; Ph=6,8 Kh=0-1 Gh=4 TDS=125 ppm NO2=0 N03=0
    I have too many pregnants, shrimplets and juves in my tank.
    My sweety's diet; ,shirakura ebi and ebi dama, mosura bioplus, mosura gravidas, sera shrimp food, genchem biomax, white pellet and fresh spinach.

    Everything is going well these days, died of a shrimp.

    Please look photos:

    How many die?

    1 or 2 deaths is very normal

    Did you add anything new to the tank, maybe bacterial infection from plants or wood or anything you add to tank? Even other crs you buy might be infected

    1 shrimp is nothing to be worried about

    how many you have?

    if they die 1 a day for a few days then you have a problem

    Every colony can vary to some degrees, but I would say drop the Ph to 6.2-6.4, and bump up GH to around 5-6. The general consensus likes to see around 150 TDS and temps from 68-70F
