Recognizing diseases in shrimp

Recommended Posts

You got anything on what to do once you've spotted a problem?


Well, not really.  I mean tannins are supposed to be great for treating bacterial problems.  Water changes help for removing bacteria and bad things in the water, but I don't have a solution for each illness.

I installed Chihiros Doctor Nano S devices (Twinstar knockoff) in a couple of my tanks on the weekend, not sure if it'll keep diseases in check but it's worth a shot.  A friend who installed one, in their tank that had a bacterial infection, noticed that the infected shrimp still died but the unaffected shrimp became more active and it seems to have stopped the spread of the infection.
