    Hi ahkarboy,
    4 weeks is ample enough time for your tank to mature. Cherries are much easier than the other shrimps, suspect something is wrong with the water parameters. Could you provide more info?
    Something about the water & the fishes that calms me down.

    Um, 2ft tank, 4 weeks old? Not enough time to mature for shrimps imho. I'd introduce them in a month later.

    And when you top up water... no water conditioners to go with it?

    Hi Terrence,

    I suppose 36cm x 10 cm x 10 cm tank is a 1ft tank.

    Hi ahkarboy,

    Ur ph is quite high har? what filtration did u use? u adding any coral chips or decoration stone which may contain so limestone? When topping up water, try to dechlrorined the water b4 adding to the tank
