my shrimp died why HELP

I just looked in my tank this morning and I found one of my fire shrimp dead and a molt. The fire shrimp was small and the tank perimiters are good and I did a 5 gallon water change yesterday. The molt was lieing about a 4 inches from where it died. What killed my shrimp. These 2 shrimps been doing so well and they play with each other. I feed them krill.

What else in in your tank? Was there rock for him to hide behind when he molted. They are vulnerable then.

Could have been just a sick shrimp. How long has it been in the tank?

Never any copper in the tank was there?

It could have if he caught the shrimp during that vulnerable time.

Wow i never thought that would happen to someone else. I had 3 skunk cleaner shrimps. 2 of them molted prior to this. One night, the last shrimp who finally molted died for apparently no reason... My other 2 were fine. 1 actually molted again yesterday w/ no problem. Wierd
