New Shrimp Molting issues

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to this forum, and I would love some help and guidance.


I just added a dozen cherry shrimp 7 days ago in my 4 gallon biorb flow tank. I drip acclimated them for 3 hours. I have a well-established tank about 12 months running.


The initial water parameters when the shrimp entered the water were:

0 nitrate
0 nitrite
150 ppm GH
0 chlorine
120 ppm KH
7.8 ph


I've seen some successful molts, but 4 of the shrimp couldn't molt and died. The water parameters I tested today are reading the same. What should I do?
