BeetleNerd Posted August 9, 2019 Report Share Posted August 9, 2019 Despite numerous berried Taiwan bees I have almost no shrimplets surviving, yet in the same tank the shrimplets of the tangerine tigers do fine. 6 weeks ago I was so paranoid that maybe something was eating them that I dosed the tank with panacur C despite never seeing any planaria but taiwan bee survival is still close to 0. I'd guess at least 50% of tangarine tiger shrimplets survive. Parameters are ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates <5, tds 130, temp 73F, ph 6.3, gh 6, Kh 0. (I use GH+ in distilled water for water changes and the substrate is Mr Aqua shrimp substrate) Im stumped, the tank is heavily planted with mosses, water lettuce, anubias and java fern and the 20 gallon tank has been established for 8 months. I feed with bacter AE once shrimplets have hatched and the adults get a variety of shrimp foods. The tank also has snails and rhabdocola. Any suggestions to improve taiwan bee shrimplet survival? Im thinking of slowly lowering the tds but I'm not sure if this will do anything. rwong2k 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
