    I just figured out what was going on this week. I removed the three that had an obvious infection. Watching for more signs of parasites. So far, so good. The rilis are in a different tank. No obvious issues so far. Don't know if I could have spread the parasite before I knew the cherries were affected.

    OK. A few people have contacted me asking who sold the shrimp to me. I contacted the seller and he said his shrimp did not have the parasite. He also said he contacted the other people he sold to and their shrimp did not have the parasite. Maybe this is true. Maybe I had the parasite in a tank that was set up in March and only had endlers before I added the shrimp in May. I don't know so I cannot judge. I will just watch my shrimp and remove any...

    Thanks Nick. I saw this article. It seems to have the most info available. Rachel O'Leary posted a video where she intentionally bought shrimp with the parasite in order to test treatments. She used Quick Cure, which says not safe for invertebrates on the label. It seemed to work for her, but it also killed some of the shrimp. I am not going to try any heroic efforts to treat my infected shrimp. I already destroyed the ones I knew were...

    I bought some cherry shrimp from somebody (I am not naming names) on this site last month and it turns out that some of them have the dreaded "green fungus". The name is a misnomer because the shrimp are actually infected by a Ellobiopsidae parasites. Being a novice with shrimp, I thought the shrimp was carrying eggs. Eventually, I recognized that things did not look right and I got a magnifying glass for a closer look. I asked around and...

    I did not buy a darn thing. I am fully stocked, so that is OK.

    I trimmed my star grass (Heteranthera zosterifolia) if anyone is interested. Hard to find in stores. Makes a nice foreground plant if you keep it trimmed. Not sure how big it gets if you let it go. Roots easily. Medium light. This was grown without CO2. Send a PM if interested. Pick up in Plano. Before: After: What you get:

    I was just going to ask if anyone had been to Fish n Chirps lately. It used to be my go to store when I was going to UNT and living in Denton County. I used to trade in soft corals that I propagated when I had a reef tank. I have a slip for $18.69 in store credit that I have been carrying around in my wallet since 2-15-99! I know they moved to a new, larger location in the last year or so. I need to pay them a visit to see if I can cash in 18...
