  1. Hi Everyone, I have recently moved and the water parameters for my tank have changed with my tap water source as a result. I have kept blue bolt shrimp pre-move and the shrimp were doing quite well, multiplying. I think I started with 20 shrimp, but I ended up with closer to 80 adults in a community tank by the time I moved. Unfortunately, the new water doesn't seem to agree with the bolts. Some of the shrimp are dying off at a slow but consistent pace. I have noticed new berried females, which is encouraging, but there are definitely mounting deaths. I am pretty sure this is a res
  2. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I guess I'll have to reconsider having shrimp in this tank.
  3. Do you think that the GH and KH levels played a large role in the Cherries not doing well? Would it be worth attempting CRS since they like lower gh and kh? Unfortunately, I only have the one tank so I can't do a shrimp only tank right now.
  4. Hi Everyone, I have been attempting to keep cherry shrimp in my planted tank for the passed few months without much success. Until recently, I have not checked the GH or KH of the water since I didn't have those test kits, but I finally bought and checked those parameters. Without further delay, here is some background on the tank in question. Tank size: 50 gallon cube w/ 15 gallon sump Substrate: ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia Fertilization: Running EI regime Co2: I don't know the exact ppm but my drop checker turns light green but not yellow by the end of the photo period
