TacomaToker Posted August 9, 2020 Report Share Posted August 9, 2020 My shrimp were doing great for almost a month, until I started losing about one per day a week ago. This started happening about the same time they started molting. I thought molting was a good sign. I did not do a water change for the first 3 weeks since no nitrates appeared (the tank is cycled). When I started noticing death last week, I did a 25% water change. This has not helped, and today I found 3 dead. It's super f****** depressing to pull dead shrimp out of the tank every day. What can I do differently here?? Any advice is appreciated. I attached a picture of 2 dead shrimp today. PH: 7.4-7.6 Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 2-3 GH: 9 KH: 2 TDS I have not tested since I do not have a TDS test. Is it possible TDS has risen to dangerous levels over the last month? I've only done the one water change, and it was only 25%. Once again, thanks for any help. Picture of passed shrimp: (any idea why they are dead next to each other? Could that be a clue?) https://imgur.com/gallery/eOAHkSQ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
