Cycling with a shrimp
Hi I'm cycling my ten gallon tank with a shrimp and everything is going well so I assume, but I wonder, is there supposed to be mold growing on the shrimp, I noticed it yesterday. Should I put a new one in?
40 gallon with 13 hermit crabs- 11 PPs, 1 E, 1 Straw
~2 Dwarf Puffer- Sidney and Cairo, 4 Amano Shrimp, 4 Blue Pearl Shrimp, 4 Yellow Cherry Shrimp, 2 Mandarin Cherry Shrimp, Too many RCS, 4 Crystal Red Shrimp, 4- Otos
~White/Teal/Red Betta- Phantom, Snails
~Leopard Gecko- Desert Rose
I don't the answer, but I am doing the exact same thing and I haven't touched my shrimp. The mold or white fuzzy stuff grew around it, which I think is what is providing the ammonia for the cycle. My ammonia levels are still too high in that tank to add fish. I don't know at what point I'm supposed to take remove the shrimp.
