I agree. You (OP) are providing more options for folks to obtain plants and thatís a good thing.

Shocking news!

I was doing my monthly large water change and picking off annoying wisps of black beard algae when something darted out of the anubias. A shrimplet!

After looking carefully, I found at least 4 distinct individuals, no more than half the length of a grain of rice. I'm sure there are more hiding. I think the individuals I saw are a little too big and fast for the majority of the endlers to bother anymore.

Fearing that I'd suck them all up, I did a careful 25% water change and will see how things are in another week. My nitrates were at approx. 30 before the change which concerns me, but I don't want to risk a bigger change right now.

I didn't think any of the shrimplets would survive past the first couple days of hatching. How exciting!

Smaller more frequent pwc are great with shrimp to keep the new and old water more similar, to avoid shocking them. Really they should be hardy enough.

Great news it is always wonderful to see new shrimplets! congrats

I unfortunately had my first death from my main tank. Checked in this morning and found the smallest one of the Endler's dead. Same fish was swimming around and eating normally yesterday.

I immediately removed the body and tested all of my parameters. The nitrates were a bit high, like I expected since I did a small WC last week. Everything else was great, so I'm not sure what the issue might be. Water only slightly softer than my hard tap, same as it's always been. 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrites. pH same as always. The temps were a tad high, but not concerning. It maxed out at 78 over the past couple of days and the Endler's are the most heat resistant, so it couldn't be that.

I did a 50% WC and am keeping an eye on things.

At this point, I'm just going to assume it's a fluke.

Nitrates were about 25ish, possibly 30.

That's not bad. Maybe just a fluke.
