    Hey Fellow addicts, was wondering what shrimp who has? I have some Cherry Red and Ghost Shrimp(and offspring of the lot haha).
    Also looking for some different colors to put in different tanks.

    so i killed a bunch of shrimp yesterday, :fail:


    I dosed with flourish excel to try and target some algae (seems like it worked), but with the added excel and no light i think i removed all the O2. came home to the shrimp clutching at the surface for air and a graveyard on the floor. luckily I still have some tough oaks left and all is back to normal now. so we learn, haha.

    I use a syringe and apply it as a spot treatment.:)

    The best treatment is to find the cause of the algae and correct it.;)
