I had one ghost shrimp (female) in a 1.5 L (temporary set up, skip the details).
I added in another female ghost shrimp in there yesterday & it was pregnant and looked like it was going to molt soon.
Today, I noticed that shrimp I added in yesterday was dead. But there were tons of tiny shrimplets swimming around in the water.
I removed the dead shrimp and noticed that the pleopods were missing & the skin above it was torn.
I guess it was going to molt, but probably didn't make it.
I added in some water conditioner to kill any newly formed ammonia in the water.
I also added in a java fern from my tank because I read that larvae eat bacteria found in water containing plants.
I also crushed a pellet of tetrabits and added that into the bowl.
Now, I want to know what I can do, in order to make sure that the larvae live.
How do I make water changes without killing the tiny larvae?
Thanks for reading through. Any advice is appreciated. :)
PS: The other female is still in the bowl. Should I take her out in order to prevent her from feeding on the larvae?
