Banded coral shrimp died whilst molting?

Hi guys. This morning i spotted my banded shrimp molting and this afternoon after work it had died still attached to its molt with a bristleworm going to town on him.

I do still have some nitrates below 10ppm that i just cant shift but hes been in there for months

Any idea what might have caused it? low iodine?

They are vulnerable during a molt so a variety of things may have happened. My banded coral shrimp hides for like a day or two afterwards.

My Fire Shrimp I'd had for a year died...I found him out in the open way up on a rock on his side...I think he struggled to death and died from that. Its like his shell was too soft and he couldn't get all the way out of it . I have a tank full of sissy fish and nothing crazy. He was still moving when I came home but a couple of hours later he kicked the bucket. Still sad about it.

Two fish enter, one fish leave.
