Strict quarantine - every tank showing any signs, at all. And those tanks that have been exposed to contamination - nets, plants, hands... anything that has shared the same water must be assumed to be contaminated. Quarantine also means, do NOT buy or sell any shrimp.

Isolate the infected shrimps to separate hospital tank.

Disinfect all tools - nets, tweezers, etc. Boiling them is enough.

Water change - Water change is essential, at most 1/3 of the water as the shrimps are very sensitive to water changes! However, more might be necessary if the situation is bad.

Remove all items in the tank - disinfect them if suitable. Boil it if practical, otherwise letting them dry out in the sun is usually sufficient. Removing items out of the tank will also help you spot any other dead or infected shrimp that will need to be separated/removed.

Increase oxygen and flow rate.

Add Beneficial Bacteria supplements, for e.g Benibachi Bee Max, Lowkeys Speed Sand, Borneowild Enlive

Other possible Treatments to try:
1) Raise slightly & slowly by 1 point - the bacteria might prefer acidic conditions. (Assumes your is low for . Try the opposite for Cherry shrimp).

2) Add Aquarium Salt to the separated shrimp - High salinity kills most freshwater bacteria by osmosis - they dehydrate. Note: this is a 1-2 minute salt bath only, do not keep the shrimp in salty water too long.

3) Slowly lower temps - bacteria love higher temps, and your shrimp love lower temps. Bacteria usually have an optimum temperature level where they thrive.

4) Since Cyanobacteria is a ... bacteria ... treatment could be similar. So do what you have to for the shrimp as if you are treating for Cyanobacteria.

5) Add aquatic plants to consume excess nutrients and nitrates.

6) Of course maintaining the quality of water within the optimum range is key to prevention, removing the dead and infected shrimps, reducing the stocking intensity, providing good nutritious feed.

7) Check the "Bacterial Infection" post above for treatment tips as well.

8) Finally, drastic measures - incorporating terramycine at the rate of 0.45 mg per kg of feed for two weeks. And bath treatment using 0.05 to 1.0 mg of malachite green per litre of water are some of the remedial measures suggested to counteract the incidence of bacterial diseases in prawns.

If caught early enough before the bacteria has eroded through the shell, it is possible to reverse this condition. There have been several cases of the black spots disappearing by itself with a change in water quality.

Thegoal in presenting this information was to provide a singlecomprehensive comparison of the various freshwater shrimp speciesmentioned in the aquarium hobby.Before keeping any species of freshwater aquarium shrimp it is important to understand that they are very sensitive to water conditions. Being a crustacean they do not have an active immune system as fish do. This leaves freshwater shrimp much more susceptible to disease and mutation. Fish require stable water conditions but shrimp require very stable conditions that rarely fluctuate.
