Did you acclimate the shrimp because if you just put them right in they get shocked from the different temp of conditions of your tank

Does the fish, invertebrates, and coral look healthy. do they have dead things and algae in and floating around the tank?The tank. Some place especially when dealing with saltwater you have to take a good look at what your buying. Look at the tail the body and even ask them to feed the fish or invertebrate because a unhealthy fish is less likely to eat. You want the first fish that races to the top, and that looks plump around the stomach.

They might be over feeding which can cause ammonia poisoning in some cases and make a sick fish. You might want to talk to the about the fishes and stuff you buy keep dieing or move on to a different fish store. If there is no other fish store you might wanna try order online.
