That's less than 2wpg. I wouldn't think they'd be able to live in such a low light enviroment. You could try moving them as high up as you can get them, see if that helps.

I agree, too little light is likely the problem. Can you post your current water parameters?
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
