Id get fresh brackish water in the tank strait away and as soon as its come up to the temperature you want then add them in strait away.
Alright, I will do just that.

I still dont know what went wrong. :(

@odin I noticed 1 adult shrimp moving weirdly, he seemed to be dragging 1 broken foot, seems like the one with the tiny claw, will he survive?

There’s a good chance it could but without us knowing what actually happened it’s hard to say unfortunately, all you can do it wait it out. Have you changed the water in your main tank?

I washed everything in the tank and changed the water. Added 3 cubes for them to hide in and now they are all in the cube houses,.
I'm thinking my tank lacks of iodine because I read from online that algae takes in iodine and iodine is required for shrimps to molt properly/smoothly.
Not too sure tho, just my guess because I cant think of other reasons why they are like this :(

What have you got in your tank to help buffer the PH in your tank?

I use fine coral sand to help with the pH, is that okay?
