  1. Exclamation Shrimp being eaten? Tetra has disease?

    0 Not allowed!
    Hey everyone, I found a shrimp skeleton today i my aquarium. Yes, it was just the shell. I have 11 rummynose tetras in my 60 litre with 5 (now 4) shrimp. Could it have been the tetras that had eaten it? Or the other shrimp? Please help me out here.

    I just noticed one of my rummynose tetras has a little whitish spot on it's nose/mouth. What is this? Is there a treatment I can buy?

    Shrimp molt. They shed their skins in order to grow, just like many insects, crabs and other Arthropods. It could be that a shrimp actually has died, but a discarded shell is a more likely explanation.

    Oh okay, I'll count them and see. Do you have any idea about the tetra?

    All of my shrimp are there, I just don't know what's up with the tetra :(

    Well, before you buy medication, you will first have to diagnose the problem. After all, diarrhea won't go away with cough drops. In identifying it, it would help to know the size of the spot, the surface texture(smooth vs fuzzy) any surrounding tissue damage, exact location on snout, any change in behavior, water parameters, maintenance schedule, recent new fish additions, and anything else possibly relevant.
