So here's the story.
I got a large order of crs in on Wednesday . Drip acclimated for 9 hours and added them to my tank. Everybody was doing great until I came home from work today (Friday) to see 4 dead in the tank. Quickly removed the dead and fed the colony a little food.

I noticed 2 shrimp acting funny doing the jump in the water and floating down slowly landing on their side. I've seen this behavior before and I knew this is bad news. Took the shrimp out and put them in quarantine where they proceeded to lay on their backs twitching. Did a smallwater change added a bit of malafix aand an air stone.

Fast forward 4-5 hours. They are just chilling in quarantine looking much better. What do I do now? Add them back to the main tank?

Parameters of main tank
Temp 72 no fluctuations
Ph 6.6
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0
Gh 7
Kh 0
Tds.212

Do you guys think I should be suspect of bacterial infection or just stressed from moving?

All my dead appear to be healthy, full coloration. I pulled one out today that I didn't even realize was dead until I saw a snail chewing on him. Looked really vibrant with full wiskers so I am not sure its bacterial.

Is it expected to lose a few shrimp when you bring new ones in?
