    update:10:00pm 17/5/2013 No sign of any hydra life, all dead. 25% water change and carbon in filter. Dosing of treatment stopped. Hopefully will be able to add nerite snails back in soon. Also a new batch of baby shrimp :D

    Sorry for the lack of updates recently, this has bee due to several university exams. I have had no more news regarding the shrimp so I assume that everything is fine. I will be able to provide a detailed update after the 24th as this is when I will be back home.

    The snails have been back in for nearly a week and they have even laid eggs. I know they won't hatch but surely this is a sign that they are healthy?
    However both of the snails have become very inactive, one has not moved from a 1inch squared bit of the aquarium wall and the other was on its back for a good few hours at least until I noticed and flipped it back over. It has not moved for a few hours either, what is wrong with them?
    Is this an after affect of the fenbendazole treatment?
    They have hardly eaten, a week or two ago the aquarium sides were spotless, now there is a build up of algae.

    I do one or two 25% water changes a week depending on the test kit readings and the shrimp seem lively as ever. They are eating well and breeding fast.

    My parameters are:
    Ammonia 0
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 0

    Have you removed the carbon yet?...I do not know the effects of the fenbendazole on the shrimp, I'm sure an expert will be along shortly to advise

    I assumed the carbon had been removed as I asked my dad to this this before placing the snails back in. I have just checked and the carbon had not removed so I have just removed it.

    Over two months since the treatment occurred. The shrimp are thriving but any type of nerite snail does not survive more than two days in the tank. Have found a snail which is not effected by the fenbendazole so i would call this a success.

    Just thought I would do a little update for this.

    The red cherry tank is still going strong. I would estimate at any one time I can see around 50 shrimp so I am guess there is plenty more hiding away. Also, I finally found a snail that wasn't affected by the febendazole treatment, my lfs call them longnose snails and they have settled in quite nicely.
