Well I have lost 2 cherry shrimp in the last week. One of the shrimp was berried by using tweezers and a fork and I saved the eggs she was carrying. I have them in a one gallon tank. I hope that these make it. I've seen this done before on other forms

OH NO!!!!!! I have had it! I loss all of my shrimp :dismay: I did a water change and somthing shocked and killed em. :crying:
I still have the eggs and hopefully they will hatch.

But I am have decided I might try something else with this tank.

What chichlids can go in a 10 gallon? Can julies or Multies work? :think:

I think it would be a very good idea to be 100% sure of what happened with your shrimp before you try anything else in this tank.

How much water did you change, what kind of water conditioner are you using, and how did you add the conditioner?

I changed a bit to much. 90% as I was destroying the snails. I am using tetra aqua safe. The fish are all healthy
