you are boiling your shrimp at 82 degrees farenheit.. shrimp are cold water. your water is too hot..if you are not keeping discus or cichlids then turn down the temp.

Yeah I understand. You can tap the bottle on a hard surface too. A lot of people on this forum give 0 on nitrates, but that's impossible. I had this issue before I knew it.

Fish constantly release ammonia into water, that will soon be converted to nitrites then to nitrates. So for sure you have at least 0.1ppm nitrates if u have > 0 fish. It's possible to have 0 nitrates only by changing 100% of the water. My tank is very heavy planted and I never less than 5ppm - 10ppm.


Before your fish dies, do they look healthy ? Do they die after a water change ? Temp change stress fish. DOes your PH is stable ? Unstable PH stress a lot fishs.

Question: did you rinse the sand out well before putting it in the tank? And what kind of sand is it?
