A frozen shrimp??!

My tangerine tiger is frozen in a spot.. He moves his legs a little bit but the other shrimps are trying to eat her. She is also pregnant What is going on?
Ive seen this before with my other tiger shrimp and i moved them to a small 1g tank to recover which they all do. This only happens to my TTs not my cherries

Shrimp don't 'give birth'.

If the eggs are close to hatching they will get very still. But not let other shrimp try to eat them...I'd isolate her.

Iodide (not iodine) is helpful with molting.
