My shrimps all died the very next morning. That's why
I believed it was the newly introduced plants. In your
case, over 2 weeks of time, the new plants might not
be the reason.

I would say rinsing the new plants thoroughly but this
might not get rid of some tough chemicals. The best
way of getting plants is from fellow hobbyists, so we
at least know that the plants are safe.
