Shrimp has something on her?


Recommended Posts

Hi @Annie! I've seen and heard of something like this but have never really experienced it for myself, but it appears like muscle necrosis/myonecrosis. If you look up "muscle necrosis in shrimp" you can compare the pictures and symptoms your shrimp may be showing to what's there to see if it matches. I've heard that it can be due to bacterial infections, poor water quality, stress, etc., but since I've never experienced it myself I can't say for sure what causes it. If it's due to a bacterial infection there's a chance that it could spread to other shrimp in the tank or possibly to the babies that just hatched from it. I'm also not too sure about treatment, but salt dips/baths seem to be a good start for most fish/shrimp diseases. Hope this helps!
