Hobbit Posted April 22, 2021 Share Posted April 22, 2021 Parameters: 10 gallon, 79* pH 6.6 Ammonia and nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 50-100 GH: 150 KH: 40-80 I lost an amano in my 10 gallon grow-out tank yesterday. It was very pink looking, like a cooked cocktail shrimp. Today another amano is turning pale and opaque. I think this could be a bacterial infection... but could it also be a nutrient deficiency? Anyone seen this before? I’ve had these shrimp since January and this is the first issue I’ve seen with them. Unfortunately I had a similar problem with cherry shrimp in this same tank before I got the amanos. The tank was shrimp-free for at least a month between the two, and I was hoping any infection would have died without a host, but maybe not. Other info: A week ago I treated this tank with paracleanse trying to save a quarantining honey gourami. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
