I'm getting a little worried about my shrimp as their population is starting to decline. Are there any causes of recurrent egg dropping?
From what Iíve gathered improper water conditions can cause this. Whatís the ph, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and if you have a measuring tool... the tds
will always be the one to get you especially if you top off the water level rather than doing a change once it evaporates enough. When evaporated, the water leaves behind the minerals and increases the tds
which is harmful for aquatic life.
