Question dry ferts and cherry shrimp

Would any of the dry ferts hurt the cherry shrimp? pressurized co2?

I use plantex csm+b, kno3,K2SO4, KH2PO4.
I'm using the ei method of dosing a 20 gallon planted tank.
My amounts are: 1/4 tsp KNO3, 1/8 tsp K2SO4, approx. 1/16 tsp KH2PO4, and 1/8 tsp plantex. I said approximately 1/16 tsp for the KH2PO4 because I don't fill the tsp up and push the ferts down so its less than half.

I have pressurized CO2 running 8 hrs per day and light running 8 hrs per day.

I've had a big cherry shrimp die off, I'm trying to figure out the cause. Could it be caused by the ferts? CO2?

Sincerely, Unikorn
