Looks like a java fern. I have one in my tank and my shrimp are fine. Could you past the water paraments. It’s probaly not the plant, it could also be copper content in the water

Hi DongHsu,

It may be the plant, which looks to be a cryptocoryne, or it could be something else. For example, if when planting sufficient substrate was disturbed to cause an ammonia, nitrite, spike could easily cause shrimp deaths.

What is your set up info? For example,

Tank size?
Substrate?
How long has it been running?
What other plants do you have?
What do you feed?
