cleaner shrimp not for me?
Just had the worst loss yet. I got two cleaner shrimp, floated the bags for 30mins, and drip acclimated them for an hour. I put them in the tank and they died within 10 mins. What's wrong, my water is perfect. I dont get it. I have tried cleaner shrimp 4 times with this exact same thing happening. I feel that i cant keep them. I am just so depressed that i they die everytime i want to get them a new home.
