Has anyone had any problems with their shrimp after switching to Prime? I always used API Stresscoat for water changes and a couple of weeks ago I switched to Prime. The only other change that I made is that I am now adding water directly to the tank after adding the prime instead of adding bucket by bucket like I did for sooo long.

In the past few weeks I have been losing amanos and ghost shrimp which were doing very well for months before. One of my Amanos even bred while in this tank.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks everyone. I also changed the source of water form my kitchen sink to the bathroom sink. I live in a condo so this may make a difference due to the piping in the building being different. Does anyone know of a way to test for Copper or other heavy metals?

I am using EI dosing right now so I change 50% every week in my 55 gallon. So I guess around 10 to 15 minutes to fill between 25 and 30 gallons. I just started doing this so I don't have a lot of experience with fill rates. Is this OK or is slower necessary?
