Re: High Temperature = Dead Shrimp
I seriously doubt that 80-82 degrees F would harm your shrimp. I keep them
in one tank with fish that prefer warmer water, and the tank runs 81*F year
round. No problem with keeping the shrimp alive. Do you have a fish in the
tank that might be pecking at them? Angelfish, for example, can wipe out a
tank of shrimp very quickly. Have you used any anti-parasite medications, or
medicated flakes, or snail killer chemicals in the tank? If you add any of a
number of chemicals, it's Sayonara, Shrimp!
