    Shrimp Life got a reaction from wyzazz in Shrimps are dead after water change   
    Sorry to hear this! Your must be using buffering substrate if your ph is so low (6.7), when you do a water change with tap with higher ph (8+) your shrimp experience a sudden swing.. For Neos or ghost shrimp just use inert substrate so you don't have to deal with swings that cause this type of stress and subsequent loss.

    Muscular Necrosis, remove the shrimp and all others that look like this. Keep up with water changes and good water quality.

    I did a video where I recommended Leaves + snowflake. Add the leaves 1-2 weeks before, add the snowflake the day you leave.

    Hi Everyone and thank you for all the suggestions and info.
     
    I went on youtube and found the video Shrimp Life made (thank you so much for letting me know!!! ) which I believe is the most helpful video along with 2 more when it comes to shrimp.
     
    I am attaching them here in case in case anyone else needs similar info in the future. I got to go find myself some snow flakes now.. I think I read somewhere in the forum that we can make them ourselves (?).. I can not remember where though..

    As for the leaves, basically all leaves will do assuming that they have not been treated with pesticides, correct? Leaves from flowers or just trees?

    Shrimp Life got a reaction from Saddleback Shrimp in [WTB] Tap water acclimated Caridina cantonensis shrimp   
    I would advise against this, I think there might be a few that will reproduce in Neo tanks but majority of caridina will NOT thrive or have a high baby survival.

    Shrimp Life got a reaction from Jacqueline in Shrimp killed after molt   
    Yes this is common for tanks with large colonies and/or lots of males. 10 gallon is not very big and can't possibly provide enough room or hiding space for female to get away from males. I talk about male to female ratio in a youtube video. Your really don't need many males in your tank to keep the population going, so I would suggest remove most of the males and sell or give them away. It will likely continue to happen.  Just keep your males population lower if you can.

    Shrimp Life reacted to JT_Redmist in Whats going on with my RCS?   
    If nothing is chasing it, it could be that a female molted, and they're trying to breed.  You have a lot of fish.  Just my opinion, but I don't like to mix fish and shrimps together.  Remember, fish eat shrimp.  Just saying

    Shrimp Life got a reaction from wyzazz in Shadow Panda questions   
    If it originally came as blue, and lost its color, They could be stressed. Caridina with blue (blue bolt, shadow panda) can change color intensity depending on things like temp, stress,  breeding etc. You can put some good quality blue bolts in with them to improve and refine the line.

    In short, No. 
     
    Active Substrate not only lowers pH but it keeps it stable at a particular pH and prevents swings.  If you have rapid pH swings you will kill your shrimp.

    I actually bought my OERBTs from them. They provided a TON of extras and so far I have not lost a single one. I actually noticed a berried female a few days ago, so I’ll definitely look into them again. It looks like they just put up an auction for some.

    Most tigers with the exception of Tangerine tigers are known to like harder water then Taiwan bees but Softer then Neos. I would ask the breeder you plan on buying from , and buy all your stock from that 1 seller. HTN inverts on Aquabid has some nice ones.
