I have not heard of any treatment for it. That does not mean there isn't one though.

That's very interesting. It sounds like they either live or die on their own. It said if they live they are carriers. That would affect any other shrimp.

With that said, I think I would put him in a ziplock and put it in the freezer to put him down. No point in letting it suffer and taking the chance that it affect anything else in the tank.

Here's 3 more pics... notice his one leg.
Well, he might live but be a little deformed? Thats okay. If he's still running around and eating, I'd wait it out, see how he does.

I'm going to see if he's better after he molts. I don't have any other shrimp, and my hermits and fish wont be affected by tsv. Fingers crossed!!!

Update... Jacque my cleaner shrimp just kicked the proverbial bucket. A second ago he was eating, then I looked again and he was keeled over with two crabs on him.

I looked like he had tried to molt, but maybe he couldn't due to his missing legs.

BOOOOOO!!!!!

RIP Jacque... Aug 2012 - Oct 2012.
