Hi! I have kept fresh water aquariums for years, new to sw
. A friend moved to an apartment and had to give up 75 gal
tank. I had this up and cycled for about 3 months. Have a tomato clown, yellow tang, 1 hermit crab and 2 small damsels, all doing fine. I also had a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp for about a month. This morning the cleaner shrimp was dead. It had molted once since I got it. Water parameters are: ammonia = 0; nitrite = 0; nitrate = 20; pH around7.9 (hard to read); salinity 33.8 ppt taken with YSI conductivity meter (converts to about 1.023/.024?); water temp 82 F. Am I doing something wrong or just bad luck with the shrimp? Really miss my shrimp.
