Re: Shrimp troubles
Thanks to everyone who has been trying to help me on the shrimp deaths.
Ya'll are a wealth of information!
CL has come up a couple of times. I am using the stump remover that says
the only ingredient is potassium nitrate. I assume that some of the stump
removers must be potassium chloride? I was actually adding it for the
nitrate, not the potassium. I don't think I am adding CL. If I am clueless,
please correct me.
As an update, I lost a furcata today and another has a gray stick instead of
a pectoral fin. I pulled it and the popeye Ram for a second quarantine
tank. I did, however, see a happy Amano shrimp just bouncing around and
acting completely normal. I don't think the fish stuff is related but I
have decided the plant/medication must have been it. I don't use lots of K
and I don't think I'm adding CL.
I do have one final question though. Will simply rinsing new plants get rid
of any residual medications?
