I have had the same problems. I have tried to own ghost shrimp, cherry shrimp, and other assorted shrimp many, many times but they have always failed in just 1-2 weeks. I have a little 1.5 gallon right now and got 6 shrimp. Its been 3 weeks and the water is perfect, live plants and everything but I've already lost one from either a molt, or cannibalism. I also cannot get them to breed which is really weird. Maybe try adding some more live plants? That could help, not that I've had any success with that but it might help in your situation. I would try dwarf hairgrass mine really seem to love munching on it.
