I do 2 hour drip acclimation whenever I get cleaner shrimp or peppermint shrimp. They are all thriving.

Usually when people say they cant keep something they make that statement after multiple attempts. This was one shrimp... sometimes you can do everything right and it doesnt work.

Are there any other fish in there because they may be getting bullied by the other fish

What do you mean “they”. He lost one shrimp one time. It was probably just the stress of the move.
