Ghost shrimp swimming up and down tank...eating cyclops?


I have had a ton of cyclops in my tank and today i got some ghost shrimp and they are swimming up and down the glass and in the corners. Do you guys think they are eating the cyclops or is there something else wrong? My water conditions are good with 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and about 20ppm nitrates.
