    10 gallon Desk Work Space Aquarium

    So I have gotten the Aquascaping "ich" and so I bought myself a Dennerle 10 gal tank.
    I used my current tanks water, api safe start, and sword plant to help cycle the tank.
    There will be some rearranging but here is the start.

    Thanks again for your wisdom.

    My idea is to make this tank as tranquil for my office desk so that I and others who come in will be relaxed. Especially since I design electronics which can be stressful due to time restraints.

    What should I do with these guys to try to save them. I have put them in new water at about the same parameters as the original tank, and I isolated from each other to help reduce infection spreading if any of them are lucky to get out of that tank not infected.

    From what i understand, unstable water parameters, over feeding, or something which weakens their immune system and when they eat they ingest the bacteria and the bacteria takes over the body and kills the shrimp.

    In the future alder cones and Indian almond leaves have anti bacterial properties that can help prevent outbreaks.

    Thanks, I just wished one I knew about the properties of the leaves sooner and figured out the bacterial infection sooner which I have recognized now. So if I do have a problem I know what to do.
    Yeah a coworker who happen to be a pet store owner at one time and his favorite thing was red cherry shrimp suggested the same thing.
    So I put some Almond leaves in and low and behold my last surviving shrimp's color came back super dark red and I believe he is going to make it but since he has already been infected his mortality is probably been reduced a little bit.
    Question So I am pretty sure my tank with the almond leaves is on the mends of getting rid of itself of the bacteria killing shrimp. How long do you think before I add new shrimp?
    I am going to try and see if I can get a picture of who I will call Rocky the last surviving shrimp.

    I have not had a bacterial out break before so I cannot advise with first hand experience.
    If the same happened to me, I would error on the side of caution. I would keep an eye on the one shrimp you have for at least 2 weeks. If there are no signs of infection again than I would add a few more shrimp and wait a week or two again. Again I have no experience with this that's just what I would do. Good luck. Oh and plants are just about ready!
