It's a shrimplet. I have 10 gallon tank With Peacock Moss on Rock, 3 Anubias Nana And 1 single Cobomba Plant. I found 1 death yesterday. And I found another one today.
Rest of the shrimp are really happy I guess?

Welp. No. It's the whole body. It turns Red Pinkish. I believe liquefied is because of ammonia spikes? And yes I didn't occur any death today. But I still want to prevent them to die I can't do any research at all and all the website said is "When Shrimp Death they turn they colour into pale red." And that's all I get lol. Kinda dissapointed

Well I can't count a 10 gallon full of Shrimp. I should say around 30-50 I only found 2 death since that happens I think there's more but we know that even shrimp eat death shrimp.

Sometimes shrimp just die. I’m not sure why yours have the weird coloration though...

Keep a close eye on your water parameters. :good:
