Hi Odin,
apologies for the late reply. was rather bz, and it slipped my mind.
Ammonia - not tested
Nitrites - not tested
Nitrates - not tested
SG of salt - 1.12
Temperature - i live in sg, should be around 26-28?
Water source - bottled distilled water
PH - 8
We can rule out age as they have bred before.
Food and feeding schedules - once a week, with spirulina powder.

any thought? thanks inadvance!

I still think you need to test your water quality, even though they have bred before it doesn’t necessarily mean your water hasn’t moved into a range of results that the shrimp don’t like.

I don't use an actual filter but I have a pseudo-biological filter at the back of my tank which consists of chaeto packed inside plastic mesh. The high surface area provides a place for bacteria to conduct the nitrogen cycle.
