A little late in the season I am afraid - might get too cold in the next few weeks for viable eggs. I usually get mine from Aquabid around april/may when temperatures are above freezing and not too hot consistently.

Acclimatized them by letting bags float in water to temp acclimate. Then added small parts of tank wanted over a space of time. Normal kinda stuff

But that is just a suggestion, maybe just more advertising of the raffle would work too.

I didn't even know there was a raffle taking place Saturday until I read this thread so +1 for it being advertised better.

I use Seachem ferts and use to use Metricide in my 75 gallon and no issues with my cherry shrimps.

Pretty sure Seachem ferts are ok.  Seems to be a bit of an online debate about Excel though especially when you overdose it like we all do.

Oh - they're just missing?  They could be molting (in which case they will hide for a few days although all of them molting simultaneously would be wierd).  Also, they could have escaped - shrimp (especially Amano's) are notorious for making a break for it.

I think they dropped off one by one I haven't found any bodies so I guess the army of pygmy corys I have eat them. I just haven't notice any in the tank for a good few days now. Normally u spot at least one right ? specially after the planting session that I did after the garage sale.

I dose some ferts, all Seachem I have messaged them to see if they are shrimp safe but I thought they all were. Only just done my first water change and that was after they had all gone missing. Plus parameters have all been stable for weeks.

I do use excel, not all the time but maybe I should cut back on the dosage? I will wait to see what Seachem say also.
