In the past couple days I have noticed a large die off. I still have probably 40-50 shrimp but it's making me nervous! I have been doing water changes regularly so I don't think water quality is the issue. I think what it is is that I waited too long before adding older enriched brine shrimp. I now have a bucket of them going, hoping it's not too late. To make this worse, I am now down to three adults.

I'm now down to probably 10-15 shrimp. The remaining have long eye stalks and more red coloring.

Trying to not be frustrated, just need to be better prepared for next time. Pretty much the same thing happened when I was working with Boggessi.

I still have a half dozen or so. A couple of the ones left are looking good, getting much bigger and taking on larger brine shrimp. They will be 4 weeks on Tuesday the 3rd, settlement should be soon.

Only three ended up making it through settlement. The first one to settle is now about an inch long. Its catching up to the adults quick! I started feeding them crushed flake food after settlement. I also still add brine shrimp and tiger pods. Im debating adding the largest to my display tank.  Undecided

I decided to add the largest to my display tank. It must have been a trip for him, first time seeing fish, coral, rock etc. He hides all day but I can kinda see him so I know he
is doing fine. He's just a little smaller than the adults now.
