aquachris Posted June 24, 2021 Share Posted June 24, 2021 (edited) Have a bunch of caridina shrimp that jumped ship the last few days. Quite sad to see their dried little corpses around the tank. Its got a pretty good lid too, but there is a cut out that the tubing goes in for the airline to sponge filter (It would typically be a cutout on the tank for a heater). I've had them for over a month and it just happened after I moved the tank a little.. so frustrating. Parameters are 0/0/<10 and about 7.0 ph, 180-120 KH and about 75 GH (Aquarium Coop test strips). I use RODI water and mix in Brightwell Caridina GH+ and really do tiny water changes (1/2 a gallon - they are in a 5g tank every 2-3 weeks - so I've only done it twice so far). My recent change was adding some plants, I'm assuming that's where things went wrong :(, its the only major change (other than a physical move where I picked up the tank and put it in a diff spot, remember its only 5g lol). Anyhow this is my first experience with Caridina's... I had 8, now down to 3. Put something to close the hole, but hoping they stay in and survive. Any hints/tricks/thoughts are appreciated. Edit: I do use Thrive-S for the plants. But I don't use a lot and it doesnt have copper, which is why I use it for this tank.
