Asilva93 Posted December 11, 2018 Report Share Posted December 11, 2018 Hello everyone, I’m pretty new here and was wondering if anyone could have an idea of what’s going on in my tank. I have 2 crystal red shrimp tanks running the exact same way, I do everything on the same day feed, top off, water change and so forth. Recently I noticed lots of berried females but no shrimplets surviving. I decided to add seachem purigen and after 2 weeks or so finally I start seeing the newborn shrimp, but I also have plants Java moss, cryptocoryne, Anubis nana, java fern, subwassertang and water lettuce and a pothos plant hanging off the side. After about 3 weeks of adding purigen the survival rate of newborn shrimp started rising but some plants like java moss, crypto and water lettuce started turning yellow and dying along with the pothos plant, the java moss started turning brown as well. I decided to remove the purigen as that is the only new thing I had added to the tank. In doing so plants seem so have stopped yellowing, and the moss stopped turning brown. The shrimp that were born within that three weeks seem to be doing well along with adults and no losses there, but again the main issue of new born shrimp not surviving is happening again. Also I use RO water and re-mineralize. Just wondering if anyone has experienced something similar and is it possible that adding fertilizers while having the purigen may fix both of my issues? Thanks everyone! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
