Can Algae Wafers Kill Shrimp?


Recommended Posts

About once a month I lose a group of Neocardina shrimp and have not been able to pinpoint the source down. At first I thought it was planaria and treated my tank which is now free of those worms but the deaths are still happening. KH, GH, nitrate, nitrate, ammonia etc. are all exactly where they are supposed to be. Temperature is high 70s. Weekly water changes of 20%  

I know that copper is super poisonous to shrimp and wondered if the copper in these wafers I feed the Pleco in that tank, which they always feast on, could be the cause. It’s pretty far down the ingredient list but I have to figure out the cause. Thoughts?
