pH: 8.0

Ammonia: 1.0 ppm

Your shrimp is dying, i'm afraid to say. But you have 1ppm of ammonia, that is enough to kill any fish let alone shrimps.

Is this a brand new uncycled tank?

You should never add any fish or shrimp into a tank that has detectable ammonia.

The pH is a bit too high for cherry shrimps as well. They do better closer to the 7.0 pH mark. But the main issue here is the ammonia levels.

Do you have another more mature tank that you can move the shrimp into immediately?

Also, do you know the TDS, GH and KH of the tank?

      Maybe around 10 or so I know that many people claim to have increased baby survival rate by dosing various baby foods or Bacter AE.  What has your survival rate been?

      No plants ‘require’ CO2 so to speak, but it helps boost growth. Flourish excel is basically bottled CO2, so you could do that. Most red plants will just grow a bit greener without CO2. I have some variety of Ludwigia repens, and it stays pretty red, as the leaves reach higher toward the light. But the best thing to do is just try something. Test it out, see what works and what doesn’t, because nobody‘s tanks are the same.

      Ok does it require CO2 also what about Ludwigia Repens Rubin super red?

      I use two 24 watt fluorescent tubes on my regular 29, and am just able to grow red plants. That’s 48 watts of light, from one pink and one blue tube, so your 37 on a tall tank might not be strong enough when it hits the bottom. If you end up dosing excel (I do and it works fine for me) then maybe try Alternanthera Reineckii, or it’s mini version (also known as AR Mini). I’ve had success with that.

      Many red plants require white and red light, could be LED or tube, power isn't important, but need enough reach the bottom, but most important co2 is needed, or they don't last.
