Lilmayo Posted October 27, 2017 Report Share Posted October 27, 2017 Hi all, first post here. I have been researching this and haven't found anything that matches whats going on with my shrimp. Everything i have found is parasites on the shrimps head and body, but nothing looks like this, looks like white specks on the tip of the shrimp's nose. It is affecting about 4 of my shrimp. Seems to be the older ones. If you can tell me what you think it is and how to get rid of it, would be greatly appreciated. Tank is about 2.5 months established So I left for vacation, was gone for 6 days. Right before I left I did a 30% water change and fed them the normal amount of food. There is some algae buildup, due to the lack of CO2 I am assuming. Light is on a timer for 7 hours of light. 10 Gallon tank. When I got back, I had lost 2 shrimp and found that some had white spots on their "noses". Started with about 10 shrimp, there has been some breeding so now there are about 10 or so juveniles and more on the way. Cherry reds, Blue Velvets and 1 CRS are currently in this tank. I typically change my water 1-2 times a week 20-30% and dose Excel and API Leaf Zone twice a week. CO2 every day, sometimes every other day. Let me know if you need any other info. Tried to get decent pictures, but they move around so much it was tough. Can get better photos if needed. I am pretty new to keeping shrimp, so feel free to tell me if I am doing something wrong. I welcome advice. Also, you can see the stringy algae on some of my HC and substrate that I have been battling for what seems like forever in both my tanks. The shrimp don't eat it. If any tips on that also, would be appreciated. May just drop the light cycle if thats it, but i was trying to grow my HC which has been a very slow process. Thanks in advance! Thanks!
