How did you acclimate the shrimp?

Higher salinity causes lower oxygen in the tank. Being this is in the FOWLR section you should have a 1.022-1.025 range. If it`s not there then slowly get it there and keep it stable.

Are you sure it's not a molt?
You reall should do a PWC with a slightly lower SG (1.024) about 10-20% depending on size of your tank.
Are you using a hydrometer?

I agree with Scott do a PWC with a lower salinity to bring yours down. 1.029 is too high. You want to bring it down slowly.

I'm almost positive its not a molt but then again I didn't really look throughly. I'm using a refractometer, its a 60 gallon, should I only do 20 percent pwc?

15-20% sounds good to me. I`m thinking you use 1.023-1.024 you should come up with around 1.026 and I would shoot for another one in a week to bring it down a little more. JMO

I agree with Mike.
Do you premix your water to adjust for the tank's temp and salinity? This is a good practice, salt mix is caustic and premixing will get the salt and water mixed and aerated.
