2 CRS Dead

seems random, as I had 9 in the tank, one died after I put in some blanched spinach but none of them ate it but maybe the one that died did eat it since it was dead next to it. The other I found dead while holding food, so maybe it over ate? Should I be concerned, the two death occurred within a week of each other. The remaining 7 seems fine and active.

I'd be concerned about that spinach...could be pesticides on it. Even if its organic that doesn't necessarily mean pesticide free. How did you prepare it?

Did you wash it then boil it soft?

yes....as for the one that died holding food, was a strange looking food as well I dont know what it was but it wasn't the typical fish flakes I normally put in, looked like meat possibly a dead snail or something.

Possible it was some of the other dead shrimp that may have been poisoned? The other shrimp ate contaminated meat and died? Organic IMO is generally a shame, but at least you have some chance of getting clean food by using it. Non-organic you can almost bet it's been sprayed with something.
