Need some help shrimps are dying everyday

I have 2 groups of shrimp ghost and cherry shrimps. I notice "Only" cherry shrimps are dying. Well it's not a big number 1 died yesterday today another one is lying on the gravel. I didn't do any water change yet because the ghost shrimp that was berried has laid her eggs somewhere, and in the tank there are some tiny cherry shrimp that I barely can see. I am afraid water change is going to be a problem. I have one huge java moss, and one moss ball, running with fluval co2 20, and aeration is fine. 0 ammonia~!

bamboo shrimp do pretty much nothing except hide on the underside of leafs.

at least mine.

how long has your shrimp tank been running? is it fully cycled?

Ghost shrimp don't lay eggs. If she no longer has them then they hatched or she dropped them. If she dropped them they won't hatch. What are your nitrite levels?
