Another ghost shirmp question, It died!

Okay, today i got 3 blue rams cichlids 4 neon tetras (a total of 6), and 5 ghost shrimps. One of them had eggs, I got home from work and eveyr thing is alive except for the shrimp with the eggs!

Is there any reason why that shrimp would have died? i saw 3 of the 4 remaining shrimp but i cant find the 4th (i barley found the 3).

I wish someone aroud here sold them so i didnt have to worry, but my local fish shop had to special order them.

Shrimp are tough to care for. I, and a lot of other people, never have much luck with them after their first molt.

Ghost shrimp need iodine added to the tank regularly to allow them to molt properly. But even after doing this, I still haven't had much success.

Better off leaving shrimp to the SW world.
