Hii my tank is 4 months old havent really had any issues cept for ammonia spike from over feeding but the last week i have had bout 10 shrimp die, ammonia was .50 but did water change, rechecked 4 hrs later but next morning a couple more shrimp died. Is it mormal for a shrimp to turn completely white after it dies? Any advise is welcome.

HI and WELCOME to TFF. When Shrimp die they do usually turn white. the ammonia is high enough to kill fish, as it is very toxic. I suggest big water changes daily for at least a week. :D

Pictures and video of the shrimp?
Upload videos to YouTube, ten copy & paste the link here.

Big (75%) daily water changes and gravel clean the substrate, as recommended above. :)
