    Switch on the lights at night, look for flatworms on the glass. RCS are usually bulletproof. Added any new plants within recent weeks? Some plant imports are treated with insecticides, that also has a bad effect on anything with a chitinous exoskeleton. Only needs small amounts. I know you say that it’s only the original adults that are dying and so this doesn’t fit, just trying to eliminate a few obvious shrimp issues.
    We have RCS here at temperatures between 70-82F without issue, I’ve housed them outside over a UK Summer when average temperatures were probably around 65F without issue, hard water, soft water, clear water, green water.

    Thanks for the advice, and holy cow out of all the research i’ve done i’ve never ran across anything about flatworms!! Good thinking!!

    And to answer your question, yes. I’m almost always adding new plants. Small tweaks here and there. It’s such an addiction, but its good news that you have had success with such a wide range of elements.
