therehere3 Posted October 15, 2017 Report Share Posted October 15, 2017 Hello everyone... Unfortunately I do not have a picture to show but I will explain it the best I can! I have cherry shrimps in a 10g (like 10shrimp). They have been healthy and breeding for a long time and the water parameters are pretty consistant. High KH and GH (hard water) like they want. My KH is like 4-5 and my GH 10-11 which they love these parameters. Temp can be alil lower, however its still fine (78*F) I've had a ton of successful shrimp molts and I see their exoskeletons on the ground... However, today I look in my tank and see 1 shrimp laying down on its side like its dead however its still alive and in great coloration still. It had like half-way molting issue or something??? Its head part was stuck on him and maybe he was stuck inside the bottom half of his skeleton or something? He just layed down on his side until eventually will twitch to maybe try and get out? Is this how they usually molt and I just have to let him fight it out or is he really struggling and may possibly die? Brings to me ask: how long usually does it take for a shrimp to molt? Whats the whole process really? Let me know any information you guys can give! Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
