Sorry to hear that Autumn it's horrible losing our little guy's.

I got up this morning to one of my ninja shrimp dead, these are one of my favorite shrimp in my tank, but I'm thinking old age as he would be at least 2 yrs as he spent a lot of time in my elephant nose tank before adding to my shrimp tank.

Found another dead shrimp this morning 😭 this time it's a young crs! I also have a borara merah hiding behind my thermostat, it's been there since yesterday so I'm starting to get concerned, feel like this tank is the tank of doom!

Mine too. Tank of Doom.

Found a couple more dead ones when I was trying to clean up and search more thouroughly.

Also found the shell of the once lively and hungry Assassin snail. He was around 2 or more years old - don't know how old they get off hand. Maybe was his time to go any how. No body just a shell.

So perhaphs all these things are related and it made the perfect storm.

Any how checking into when or where my shipment of macro algaes went if sent or IF they actually were sent. They never came. Bottom line.

One good thng about the TT shrimp was that I found a berried one still in there. About 6 shrimp total I think.

I cleaned out their tank again last night with 3 ~50% pwc, 3 because I cleaned the filter and moved it over and then stirred up some particles in the water. I think I will clean it out in the next 2 days, work is busy now. Move them all over to the 12G Edge and clean out the Mr. Aqua and use it for the SW tank.

Or finally take the low iron rimless tank down to a glass company to measure, cut and glue in a new bottom. That was such a pretty tank.

Once up a time.

Sorry Autumn soo sad : ( I've just found another orange shrimp dead! It's getting that bad that my son is calling me the grim reaper off shrimp! He's probably right.
Increasing my elephant nose meal at night for some reason he has gone off eating in the mornings.
Decided to give the shrimp tank a large change tomorrow.

Well let's you and I have no more shrimp deaths.

Tonight when home the Shrimp tank looks very clear. Probably good moving the filter to the other side to help clean more in a different direction.

No word back yet about my SW order, whether it was received by them or sent - lost in the mail or not sent. :/

Such gloom and doom lately. Let's hope things improve in both of your tanks.
Did a second dose of fenbendazole in my shrimp tank. Treating for a planaria problem. 12 hours after the first dose, the planaria were out and about after I dropped in an algae wafer. Hoping the second dose did the trick. About the drop in another small wafer and see who shows up. Fins crossed.

Just finished a large clean on my shrimp tank, cut back a few of my plant's looks better. Haven't found any dead shrimp yet.
Trimmed some plant's back in my elephant nose tank, noticed some dying leafs.
Fresh2o, I hope you win your battle against planaria, actually noticed a few in my shrimp tank today.

I received 12 red cherry shrimp for my 10g shrimp tank so now the stock is 13 shrimp, one of which is berried, and another might be a fire red shrimp

I also have 5 assassin snails in the tank

Did the weekly 20% water change on the 20-long ("JJ&J's Seafood Buffet"). Did some trimming of the plants (The Cardamine Lyrata is trying to take over) and then went to Petco to buy seven Neon Tetras. I held off because the usual "fish guy" wasn't there and I wasn't sure if the cashiers knew how to safely catch and bag fish. I'll go back tomorrow and try again.
