Green thing on red cherry shrimp head


Recommended Posts


I noticed this green thing on one of my red cherry shrimp (first two pics). Internet search says it’s green fungus and I did 3-4 salt dips on it a week ago. The bright green is currently gone and now it’s more of a white (third pic). I’ve isolated it into a separate container and my other 3-4 red cherry shrimp don’t seem to have this issue. Should I still continue doing salt dips or is there something else I can try?

Water Parameters:

  • Nitrates - 20-30 ppm
