  1. Default After moving shrimp, they are acting wierd...

    Just moved them into a planted nano tank, and they all started swimming around like crazy... I have cherries and red nosed shrimp, and I'm not used to them acting this way. They used to just hide and walk on the ground area. I don't know if it has to do with 5 having eggs or the water change. I've done everything necessary to keep the water safe. Please help, I don't want anything to die.

    Every organism gets a little stressed after a move. Best thing you can do is to leave the light off and don't disturb the tank until they get used to their new surroundings. Everything should be fine.
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    Thanks, I turned off the light earlier just in case that was why. Hopefully when I get back tomorrow they will back to normal.

    If they were in a larger tank then they might be more active in a smaller tank with only shrimp.

    I prefer all shrimp not to be swimming 24/7... They have stopped anyways, thankfully. Now there are all bunching up in groups and going to the highest possible point in the tank... Anyone know?

    I'm thinking they are going to do whatever they need to do until they settle down - any living thing needs adjustment time when moved to a new home. As long as the water parameters in the new tank are good & the water temp was close to what they came from, they should be fine.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, green corys, 1 guppy, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT with green corys & 2 guppies

    Did you cycle the water? I know shrimp have an aversion to nitrates, but for sure nitrites and ammonia are bad for them. Also maybe they are just overstressed and only 1 or 2 die, a weathering of the storm kinda deal. RCS will come back, not sure of the others, if the water is cycled. IMO anyhow


    Shrimp and snail junkie... What can I say, I like the little things in life.

    I am now changing water once every 1 or 2 weeks and I have had no deaths since. I am noticing some algea but I'm gonna rub it off tomorrow. I'm about 85% comfortable with everything right now.
