I would value advice on how I could ensure my only surviving red cherry shrimp lives until it gives birth. I started out with 7 from Petco around two weeks ago, placed them in a net breeder in a 29 gallon tropical tank with floating plants, and watched as one after the other passed away. This is not my first time owning shrimp; at times, I've gotten them to last for at least a few months before losing them to changing water parameters, moulting, looking at them the wrong way, etc. I decided to give them another try after setting up my 29 gal (it's been running for about two years). Less likelihood of water fluctuations in such a large tank. The water temperature remains steady at all times at 79 degrees. Tank parameters remain 0 ammonia, 0 nitrate, and 0-5ppm nitrate (my tap water has nitrates.) I typically only perform a 20 percent water changed once a week. I lost the first five shrimp before the scheduled water change, but I think they succumbed to moulting issues - my tap water supply is also soft and slightly acidic, but my local Petco uses the same county water source. I also use the special substrate that's supposed to raise KH in the water to make the shrimp more comfortable. Before this Friday's water change, I added dechlorinator to the change-water, let it sit overnight, then siphoned out less than usual. The remaining two females seemed to be fine, swimming around and eating vigorously until I came home after grocery shopping today to find one dead. The other is alive for now, hiding in the floating plants, which I know is normal for a berried female. Any tips on how I can reduce stress for her? I'm eager to see some shrimplets. The last berried female I had a few years back disappeared never to be seen again. TIA.
