Remi de Groot Posted February 7, 2022 Share Posted February 7, 2022 Hey all, Came home to an Shrimp massacre today. In one of my shrimp tanks (left one on the picture) 7 out of the 10 Caridina Blue Bolt shrimps died, the last 3 are barely moving. The aquarium itself has a strange chemical (almost chlorine) smell to it what it didn't have before. Thank has been running since begin november, shrimps added mid december. Except for 1 death shrimp couple days after adding them never had any other problems with the tank. Water tested good all the time and even with the funny smell and death fish i can't see anything strange in the numbers from the tests. Did it both with a drip test as with a strip (because i didn't trust the first results. Tds 149 (normal between 130-140) Ph 6,0 Kh 0,0 Gh 6 No2 0,0 No3 0,0 Nh3 0,0-0,5 Po4 0,0 Aquarium is filled with reversed osmosis water with some GH+ and ADA Amazonia 2 substrate to get the PH lower and in balance. Someone that knows what could have caused the deaths and the strange smell to the water? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
