I received my 5 amano shrimp in the mail on tuesday. There was 1 DOA and a shrimp that looked like he was about to die, he was very hazy and wasnt moving alot. Yesterday I started noticing that one of the amano shrimps was turning red and hazy. He died last night. I dont know what is causing this? This morning I noticed a shrimp that had a blueish tint to him does this mean he will also die soon? Did I get weak shrimp or is it me?

Ammonia- 0
Nitrite- 0
Nitrate- 10-20

My guess is that they probably had a stressful ride in the mail which might have weakened them. Did you just transfer them straight into your tank or did you acclimate them?

The ammonia caused by the dead one could have caused problems with the others. Could be poor stock too.
