Shrimp Keep Dying

For some reason I can't keep my peppermint shrimp alive. I have all reef safe fish and everything. I know they could be sensitive to salinity changes, whenever I top off with rodi I never raise the salinity more than .001 My parameters are good, everything in the tank is thriving and growing. What's with the shrimp?

I acclimated it for about an hr and a half by drip acclimation. This one lasted like 2 weeks. And nope, I don't have much of a cuc. He was the only shrimp.
