Can you please help! My vampire shrimp is dieing I don't know what to do. I just added drift wood to my fish tank because I thought that was the PH that was botthering him, but it doesn't seem to be the case. It is 7.6 right now and it was 8 before. I added the driftwood without boiling... I don't know if it is what I did that is killing him. Should I take out the driftwood?

There's 3 more things I did...

I just changed 3 gallons of water from the tank. I'm concerned that if I change too much of the water the pH will rise too much and kill everyone, since the water from North Texas is high in pH.

When we notice he was not ok, I changed his food. I bought Wardley Shrimp pellets so he could eat better, was according with a reasearch I did on him. Before I was feeding everyone with Aqueon Tropical Flakes.

I introduced moss in the tank as well, but I just removed for fear that was the wood the moss was in. I did not boiled it either. I was really reckless. I will be paying more attention.

So, he likes when I clean the tank because of the dirt that rises, so I'm hoping he will fell better.

Question.

When we get drifwood, do we have to boil it before introducing to the tank?
Should I remove mine and boiled it?

Did you buy the driftwood or just pick it up from outside?

I bought it in a specialized store for fish. But they kept the driftwood outside. I assume that was safe. Now I am really worried.

yeah take it ou and try boiling it. See if it does anything to the water you're boiling it in.

The only thing I see right off is No ammonia or nitrites in tank as they are very susceptible to poisoning.There are so many possibilities as to what it could be it's really hard to say.

There's no ammonia in the tank right now I did not test nitrites, but my tank is Cicled. I don't think that is the problem
