During moulting shrimps are very vulnerable. They can even die from a single poke from fish, so if you want shrimp I suggest you give them hiding places (mugs, cups, etc), so when they moult they can hide in them.

Also, if your water is not hard, I suggest getting some calcium in there, to help with the shrimps and their moulting.

:( they have soooo many hiding places... caves, shells and its a well planted tank. I guess why I dont understand then is why this one chose to do it in plain sight next to my banana lily T___T I think my cory ran into him and killed it...
