Somehow the nutrients got in the water. Whatever you are adding to the tank must be removed with water changes. You aren't adding any food at all for the shrimp? How long do you think they will last without food?

For the best interest of your tank you may have too? So you not have any place that sells reverse osmosed water?

You can mix the salt they have with RO/DI water you buy

No. Shrimp do not eat algae for the most part. They eat meaty foods. I have seen the pick at nori from time to time, but they are not going to be able to live on hair algae and cyanobacteria. If they did, you wouldn't be having a problem with it.

Also you can purchase Nestle water from a walmart which is great for making fish water, I used it until I could get an ro/di filter.

If you can't get ro/di, distilled is ok not drinking or spring water
