I received my package of 12 red cherry shrimp (and a lot of hitchhiking shrimplets) Wednesday night. No problems until this afternoon. I come to see two dead shrimp,there weren’t any dead this morning. The rest are actively zipping around. Water parameters seem fine, temp is around 74 degrees, 7.2 ph under 5 ppm nitrates, plants. Could it be acclimation, even though they were fine for a day/2?

Could it be that molting mishap people talk about (found two new moly’s just now)? From a lack of protein or too much light (I do 12/12)

Edit: one of them is paralyzed but it’s legs are moving, should I leave it alone?
