MY adult shrimp have been dying after giving birth.

 

I only have many baby shrimp.

 

Water Parameters:

 

GH  120 ppm  (well water)

KH  120 ppm   (well water)

Ph 7.5

NO 2  0.5

NO 3  2.0

 

Temperature 73 degrees F.

Standard black and white gravel

Snails-   adults the size of a fingertip

Miniature white spiral snails

 

Red Sakura

Tangerine Tiger

Gold Yellow

Blue Dream

 

To my knowledge most babies survive:

Some red

Some red with a prominent red stripe on back similar to Gold Yellow

Some red and clear stripped

Some clear

I had two blue babies that have disappeared.

 

Planted tank:

Hornwort

Guppie grass

Cryptocoroyne wenditi

Dwarf Onion

Aponogeton Ulvaceus

 

 

Sponge filter

 

Warm white and daylight lighting

 

No Tropical Fish

 

Light feeding every other day.  ( I keep the snail population down to the point that they do not compete with shrimp for food.)
