    Some one suggested that I use Seachem copper safe. I think that's what it was called.
    If I use something like this will it kill my pest snails or any other snails for that matter? I like the pest snails so I don't want to get rid of them.

    I dose EI, is it ok to use a copper treatment along with my ferts?

    What make sure you think you have too much copper. I would start with getting a copper test. If not, the deaths might be related to thee factors like molting issues or pests like hydra or even planaria.

    What kind of shrimps?
    Make sure your GH is in 5-6 GH levels.

    I have Amano shrimp. I'll check my GH
    My shrimp do well for a few months, then they just start to die off.
