Can I use other kinds of salt for my volcano shrimp (opae ula) tank ? No, it killed my shrimps !

Common Sea Salt killed my Volcano Shrimp

The answer is NO !

I made this mistake a few years back when I used Portuguese Sea Salt and Himalayan Rock Salt for my shrimp tank. It was affordable and easily available in any supermarket.

But the moment I put the volcano shrimp into the mixed salt water, they swam in circle and upsize down in distress ! Many shrimps died as a result.

Perhaps some chemicals were used in the packaging of these salts. But I have no way to find out.

My advice is to use Aquarium Sea Salt for marine fishes and invertebrates. Be safe than sorry.
