So I don't think my shrimp are going to make it, not sure if I got bad shrimp but they are both on their side and stopped eating. My snail is doing fine though.

And pretty sure the female is dead now :/ good thing they were cheap not sure why they are dying but my snail is fine. I thought maybe it was something in the water but everything was cleaned well and they only just started acting off only an hour ago.

How long did you have them? More often than not, "feeders" are sick when you get them, because they're so cheap, and the stores don't feel as though they should take care of them, because they're supposed to be dead shortly after purchase anyways. If you've had them for a while, it could be just about anything.

I had them only 24 hours, yeah they were ghost shrimp so feeders but they were in with the snails and my snail is fine, in fact he's doing great eating everything I give him. The female is officially dead, I just threw her out now. The male is stick kicking.

Also I threw in some lettuce for the snail and the male is now sitting on it though I don't know if he is eating it or not. It's hard to tell his mouth is so tiny.

Also Hermies my male has been swimming around and right now is sitting on Tesla's shell (the snail) do you think if he has been swimming he should be okay? I actually love him more than the female because for a shrimp he is quite the character.
