It's odd how some shrimp thrive in our tank while others disappear. We've bought more than twenty ghost shrimp. But we only have seven in the tank. I had thought the coloration might mean the remaining shrimp were a different species and that explained why they survived.
Ghost shrimp can and will kill each other, so that may explain your problem, the ghost shrimp I had would display lines of orange on their tail once they reached about 1"
