When wood shrimp are happy with their environment they will stay right in a strong current and filter water with their fans. It is not natural for them to pick up bits off the ground with their fans. I believe it is important to have plants with these shrimp you also NEED some place in the tank that has a strong current and some hard object that sticks into the current like a piece of wood.

I know all this now. I did move that piece of driftwood a bit when I cleaned and then saw my poor Bamboo shrimp holding on for dear life to a leaf on the driftwood trying to get in the current. I was thinking of moving it, and the next day, he had "jumped" out. I felt so sad about it, and now will wait till I have the correct set up in my tank I'm in process of upgrading.

Poor little guy. I see them at the petstore picking food from the subtrate, and when they do that it can indicate they are starving and not getting enough food.

I know. I never had to treat my tank for this. So it is all new to me and hopefully I can treat it. I already lost one fish. My giant danio who was 3 years old.

I know I wouldn't chance it, and I have no experience with Ich but I understand inverts are not effected by FW Ich, only the treatments.

I'd have to ask around.

Thanks. I was actually going to go out a buy a new heater tonight since mine wont get the water warmer than 75, and I have been adding salt and water changes, but I was going to get some medicine too, just gotta make sure it is ok with salt since i know there is one that start with the m. which you cant mix with salt.
