Did you check your parameters? A cycled tank doesn't = the right parameters.

And Kithy is right: Like feeder goldfish, they have a high mortality rate. They aren't well cared for before they even arrive at the store because they're not high $$.

I read on several shrimp fact sheet that often the first indication of iffy water parameters is a shrimp's desire to escape. Shrimp need a mature (not just cycled) tank to thrive.

To the OP: Even though I keep several shrimp species (Vampire, Bamboo, Red Cherry, Blue Velvet, Amanos and Malawa), I gave up on Ghosties. It's probably not anything you're doing.
