This will be a 10g dwarf seahorse species tank. My tank is currently cycling. I've had about 12 pounds of LR
in there about a week now, adding a piece of raw shrimp every 2-3 days for ammonia. Yesterday I added 3 astrea snails and 3 sexy shrimp and 2 types of macro algae to the setup. The snails and algaes and 2 shrimp are doing great, but one shrimp looks kind of green. My current parameters are:
pH 8.2, ammonia 5.0, nitrite 0.25, nitrate 1.0 (this is from memory, so I may have mixed up the nitrate and nitrite level numbers), SG
1.022, temp 78. I'm thinking that he maybe ate some of the macro algae and is turning green from that? Let me know what you think--should I worry, or is this normal? Thanks!
