The problem is if a shrimp dies in a fairly population tank, they get eaten by the other shrimp the moment they stop twitching their legs and the other shrimp will eat everything of the dead shrimp. Not sure why they could be dying but if you fully searched every area 3 times over, then maybe that happened. You have to search like 3 times though, its always hard to make sure. I just moved my tigers from yellow tank. Should be easy to spot them all. It was only a 5.5 gal, not a lot of room to hide, yet when I thought I was done, 5 hours later I see another tiger. Get that one, 3 hours later, another. lol. They can be sneaky.
