Only one? You should get 2-3 more. How big is your tank?

RIP Russell
RIP Quicksilver
RIP Dominic

RIP 4 cories, 23 Ghost Shrimp, and a snail

I have a 3 gallon... well, the shrimp did not survive the weekend. I don't think he was eaten... I think my tank was too warm for him. The water parameters were....

(Cycled Tank)
<.02ppm ammonia
0ppm nitrites
10ppm nitrates (measured this morning)
120ppm hardness
about 170 ppm alkalinity
and it goes between 78 to 80F - I'm assuming it was 78 cause the light was left off during the weekend.

Aquarium salt was added.

I didn't see evidence of Sammich eating the shrimp.. but he was pink when I discovered him dead. I am thinking maybe it was too warm... maybe the ph was too high... Maybe Sammich killed him but just didn't eat him..

Something I failed to consider - I had placed a root tab in the tank for the plants a few weeks back.. may have been copper in the water that the shrimp was sensitive to. So, I'm thinking no shrimp at this point.
