2.5g. One of the shrimp may have died, but it couldn't have been in there for more than 2 hours.

yeah, 2.5 gallons is pretty small to buffer the concequences of a death. my own 2.5 is insanely heavily planted. I've had two otos die in there (one stuck behind the filter, the other just didn't eat). One I found two days later and took out. the other one I never found... but their decaying bodies didn't impact the water quality at all. Reason why I love love love love plants.
