how long do shrimp live?
 
I have had these shrimp, forgot the name but they aren't ghost shrimp and they are see through... I had them for about 2 yeast and today one of them died... is it old age?

Hi fellow Nevadan,

Can you post a picture? There are a lot of species of shrimp. Could it be an amano? Some dwarf shrimp only live a couple years. Sometimes they can die from the molting process and then there are cases where they die and you just don't know why. Of course you want to check your water parameters to see if it could have been avoided.

Sounds like Ghost shrimp. They are affected by sudden ammonia swings. When you said 2 yeast, what does that mean?
