I got a few Pumpkin RCS last week. Some were berried, and one has already had her eggs hatch.
I THINK it's the same shrimp that had her eggs hatch that is now carrying a few fecal pellets with her pleopods just like she would normally carry eggs - she uses her swimmers to jostle the pieces around (just like if they were eggs). They're dark and longer, not round, just like the shrimp feces I see in the tank anyway. I don't always see the same number of pieces in there so it's not like things are building up, but I'm still concerned.
Anyone ever have this happen? Is this actually a sign of something wrong with my shrimp? Should I be doing something?
Thanks for any insight you might have!

Bit of a wall of text here so apologies, but I really need some help.
This is actually the second batch of shrimp that I've tried to get in my tank and it's just not working at this point. My first batch was red cherries and got them last week, they all seemed to die off in a couple of hours and after extensive searching it seemed to be due to improperly acclimatising them (I floated for about 45 mins the same as I would fish). I believed that to be the issue.
So after getting a KG, GH and copper tests as I wanted to make sure those were good (all of which are fine) I ordered some more with the plan to drip acclimate them and that would all be it. After acclimatising for a total of about 3 hours, I put them in a mesh box in the tank and low and behold, they're all lifeless again an hour later with only the smallest sign of life (pleopods still moving on a couple of them).
Where am I going wrong here? I've found the odd article online advising that potentially some plants my have pesticides on them that are lethal for inverts but all the plants came from proshrimp.co.uk so you'd think they would be shrimp safe.
I've taken the shrimp back out of the tank and into a separate container and i'm dripping fresh (conditioned) water in with the hopes of regaining some life in them but i'm not too hopeful about that.
Any ideas because at this point I'm not even sure I'd manage with just a shrimp tank and it's very disheartening...
My parameters are as follows.
KH:- ~3° / 50ppm
GH:- ~5° / ~90ppm
Any help here would be really appreciated. Thanks.
PLEASE HELP ME!!! One of my hermit crabs has fallen from a high place in his tank and hit a hard surface and he is now out of his shell and not attempting to reside in another one. There are no cracks in the shell. But he is not moving much anymore and I noticed an orangey coloured growth it looked like on his abdomen. I’ve tried to gently place him back in his shell but he just won’t stay inside. I don’t know what to do now and i’m very afraid he is going to die:( Please help.
I imagine if they are external, she's holding onto them with her swimmerets? But maybe they're actually inside?
I've always wondered about this and have tried to look it up multiple times and cannot find an answer.
Beneath a hemisphere of transparent crystallum, the professor shuffled xis notes. Xe didn’t need to consult the data slices anymore, having been on the station for many orbits - but adjusting them was a part of the performance. Around xim, the last of the students were settling down in their varied seats, perches and pools - another generation of students at the Academy for Conscious Lives in the Universe.
“Did humans ever exist?” the professor asked in the core language forms - pulsing air for the virbrists, flickering light for the spectrists and oscillating xis magnetobladder for the electrists.
The starry sky outside flashed, as the academy’s particle accelerator searched for tachyons in increasingly high powered collisions. Despite the flickering nonsense, even the spectrists were rapt as xe began to teach Galactic History.
“Search deep enough in the annals of each sentient species, and you will find characters that match the proposed traits of humanity. Carbon-based, oxygen-processing, endoskeletal bipeds with high technology and many talents. They are a diverse cast - diplomats and generals, scientists and prophets, philosophers and tricksters.”
“Indeed, some scholars,” xe was sure to emphasise the purple in that word, “claim that humanity visited all sentient worlds simultaneously, close to one galactic cycle ago, pointing us towards the stars once we were ready for peaceful galactic coexistence.”
“To continue in my class, you must accept this for what it is - mythology, and nothing more. A myth perpetuated through charitable interpretations of uncertain histories and shoddy evidence. Will you be serious students of history, or will you choose to believe in humans?”
After a theatrical pause, xe resumed the lecture, “Good, now let me take you back to the birth of the-”
“With all due respect, xir, I believe in humans.” One student was standing with upper limb raised.
Academy admissions had always succeeded in screening out such Humanist kooks, but xe supposed one would get through eventually. The professor glanced to xis notes for a moment, before speaking with an orange tone, “Well then, why don’t you enlighten us with your beloved nesting tales.”
“Thank you, xir.” The creature bobbed it’s head, grey plumage wobbling with the movement, “Less than 17 galactic cycles ago, life emerged on a planet that would be known as Earth. After many cycles, a sentient species evolved and they were lucky enough to develop a culture with just the right b... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m looking for others’ experiences, in general, and specifically re: treatments. I found one, just one, young shrimp yesterday with the start of it and immediately quarantined. Am feeding with this medicated food. I spent hours looking at the other shrimp and cannot find a single one who looks compromised. What are the chances that I caught it at the beginning?
The infected shrimp is new, from about two or three weeks ago. I should have quarantined — didn’t occur to me until I was releasing the new guys and kicked myself for fucking up. Still, I think there’s a good chance the food will work for the one sick dude because the infection appears very light.
E: the photo is not of my shrimp; to see the green stuff on mine she’s gotta be right against the glass with her pleopods facing you

In both the trailers, first and second, we see in a certain order, the appearance of first crabs, followed by fish, dolphins and whales.
The crabs are always isolated from the others. Curiously, by observing the underside of the crab, you can determine its sex. Interestingly enough, all the crabs that can be observed this way are female. Compare for yourselves Crabs in trailer
>Another conspicuous difference is the form of the pleon (abdomen); in most male crabs, this is narrow and triangular in form, while females have a broader, rounded abdomen. This is because female crabs brood fertilised eggs on their pleopods.
Carrying their fertilized eggs in their arms? Sound familiar?
Now to the rest of the fauna. Whales, and dolphins. From what I could see, the type of whales presented seem to be like sperm whales. Why such a slim selection?
> The toothed whales (systematic name Odontoceti) are a parvorder of cetaceans that includes dolphins, porpoises, and all other whales possessing teeth, such as the beaked whales and sperm whales.
Aside from their astounding intelligence, I found the similarity of having teeth to be very curious. So they have teeth, what’s the big deal? I dunno, you need teeth to eat and chew on stuff.
Well, I want you to picture the last scene from the very first trailer, the one with low roar, or pull it up. Ok got it? Ok read this.
>Odontocetes, as a whole, mostly feed on fish and cephalopods, and then followed by crustaceans and bivalves(mollusks).
If you look closely enough in either the first or second trailer, you can spot some bivalves.
>Killer whales and bottlenose dolphins have also been known to drive their prey onto a beach to feed on it, a behaviour known as beach or strand feeding.
Quite a parallel with the scene isn’t it? It’s almost as if they died amidst their feeding. However, why would they feed only on female crabs? Why would Kojima show these fauna so frequently, and spend a large amount of screen time with them? Is there meaning behind their appearance, or is this coupling just mere coincidence?
