Zailyn Posted November 11, 2018 Report Share Posted November 11, 2018 Hi, so last night I saw on of my Sakura shrimp struggling to molt. I didn't know how I could help so I let it be. Now I woke up this morning to 3 dead shrimp all looking like they were trying to molt. I tested my waters and these were the results. I used API's Freshwater Master Test Kit. Ph: 7.6 - 7.8 Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Nitrate: 0ppm KH : It took 6 drops for the color to change so if I understood it right it's around 100ppm GH : It took 17 drops for the color to change so I'm guessing it's around 320ppm I'm guessing GH is too high. I used tap water with a water conditioner. I always use the recommended dose after water changes etc. How can I decrease the GH and maybe even the PH? Extra information : I dose daily the recommended ammount of liquid CO2 and I just started feeding the shrimp Shrimp King Complete. Any ideas why 3 shrimp died in 1 night. I got these shrimp in a batch of 15 around 1-2 weeks ago and there were only like 2 other deaths that I know of.. Thanks for your assistance.
