new shrimp after bacterial infection killed all shrimp (but not fish)

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Shrimp keepers,


recently my shrimp started to die off one by one without any sign of problem. I double checked the water parameters and they were fine. I have googled around and I found out that it probably was bacterial infection. I keep rili shrimp so I could see the internal organs having pink color that according to the posts is a sign of infection.


my question is, is it necessary to tear down the tank after all shrimp died, but fish and plants are still thriving. Could I just put medication into the tank to kill of the bacteria and then buy next batch of rili shrimps and put them into the tank or they will get infected again?
