I seem to be loosing Cherry shrimp by the day at the moment :( I've lost maybe 5 or 6 this week :( Not sure what it is, maybe the Excel dosing (which I've stopped) or maybe too much trace (AE trace mix) perhaps?

Sorry to hear that :(

I've had a lot of good advice from this place: http://www.shrimpnow.com/forums/

Ammonium and Nitrite should always be 0, and as for the ferts, shrimp are massively sensitive to even the smallest amounts of copper. They are more prone to these (and other things) after molting.

Copper levels worry me when adding trace mix, although the AE stuff has a lot less than the Garden Direct stuff, and other people seem able to keep shrimp happy. Can a copper free trace mix be made up or purchased? This fert business confuses me tbh :?
