    They're probably a bit stressed from the move. Give them a few days to settle in and then try feeding them again. They won't die if they don't eat every day. Trust me. :)

    Check your water parameters as shrimp do not tolerate waste. Do daily water changes and remove uneaten foods before they pollute the tank.

    Otherwise give them a few days to adjust.

    Well if the shrimp is "shedding" or molting it wont eat. It will likely also hide for a day or two and you wont see it.
