    Okay I was due a water change don't know if I will now. One of my cherries has shed her skin (first time I've ever seen them do it) and now there's lots of little white specks flicking around the water

    Tested the water last week everything ammonia and nitrite were 0 and same last night so I'm a bit confused as to why one of the two big bright shrimp has curled up and died in qted him in case he's faking and will see what he's like when I get back fingers crossed if it is a death it's shedding related since I've just ordered 10 friends for them.... :S

    None whatsoever, maybe they do that when they're that long dead?

    think the conclusion was its the colour of the blood when its deoxygenated and it was at the bottom half of the body because of how he was 'sat' when he died.

    large water change done, levels all being fine the 10 cherries that were ordered before he died were added last night or should i say 8 cherries and 2 blue shrimp (must be kept in the same tank) all of varying stages and one is even berried. makes the existing rcs that was already in there look a monster with the size difference haha

    on a side note i've had two filters running side by side for what feels like ages now. how long until that mature bacteria transfer over should i turn established filter off but leave it in and have the new one running on its own ??
