Just noticed this today, 2 affected yellow males turning white-ish, paralyzed, only moving swimmers and legs. Could be:




1. Hydra in the tank (most likely)
2. Bacterial infection, but I'm not sure if they turned white first, then got sick; or got sick first, then turned white (more plausible since the healthy shrimps do not show opaque white infection)
3. I had Frontline oil on my hand and dipped it into the tank (also likely)




Other healthy shrimp in tank.

Any new kickers? Did you end up ordering the panacur?

Ughh! The remaining male looks like its sick / catatonic. Body more white-opaque, does look like a bacterial infection. Pikachu-shrimp DIED with a clutch full of eggs! I guess you can't see bacteria infections on females. I have 2-3 females remaining, the more orange ones.

Nothing is wrong with the water, 0/0/0, pH 6.8 TDS 200. I'm ruling out Frontline residue in the tank cause I stuck my hands in my other tanks too and they're all fine, so are the Malawas. I also see no hydras in the tank (there was one that I squished...)

Only recent change: used magnet cleaner to clean glass algae; upset a little dirt while planting.

I think these are just super sensitive, more so than my crystals?

I'm done with yellows, going to stick in the blue rili x. orange hybrids in here when they get a bit bigger. That or other rilis.
