JShannon Posted May 11, 2021 Share Posted May 11, 2021 I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures. I have a ten gallon tank with approximately 25-30 cherry shrimp of mixed varieties. This morning I noticed that one of the shrimp that I previously thought was maybe just berried was growing a green like growth outside of it's underside around it's legs. I promptly removed and unfortunately had to euthanize this shrimp because a Google search showed that this disease is infectious and potentially can destroy entire colonies. The parameters are as follows as measured by API test kits. Ph7.2-7.4, Gh-8, Kh-4 , ammonia-0, nitrite-0, nitrate 0-5 ppm( it's a heavily planted tank with floating plants, I dose easy green twice a week and it always trends toward 0) water temp fluctuates between 73.9 and 75. I'm fairly certain I know what disease this is I'm just not sure from my online research how to proceed. Has anyone had any success preventing this from spreading? It's a green Growth that starts on the shrimps pleopods and grows out from there. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
