Cloudy water after expel P


Recommended Posts

Despite box saying this product does not cause cloudy water, mine went totally murky overnite! All parameters are good still however. I  see I have lost a few ghost shrimp but still have a few out of the original ten.

Will do the water change 25% tonite and hopefully things will revert.

Levamisole can be harmful to shrimp if your going to dose your tank I would recommend removing them most medication can cause a cloudy water after as long as your parameters are fine and you have added an extra air stone I would worry

Product says safe for invertebrates so I guess we will see who’s hardy😢. I’ve never had this much drama with new set up. I’ll keep forging ahead to next steps. Thank you.

Some species of snails such as rabbit and mystery snails can be kill by levamisole it can cause shrimp to slow down causing stress molts in higher enough dose can be fatal to shrimp
