cherry shrimps and PH

hi,saturday i got 4 cherry shrimps for my edge.i acclimatized them for nearly 2 hours,adding small amounts of tank water every 20 mins.this morning they were all dead...
did a quick water test and all ok apart from the PH..it was 6.0,a bit low i think.
would this cause the death of my shrimp?the water temp is good and the only other living things in there are 12 endler guppys and a amano shrimp...

Gee cherry shrimps can take a wide range of pH.
Perhaps the gH is too high or low or something?
Sounds odd as usually they are tough as nails.

Late reply but better late than never I guess.

I've had zero luck with both Cherry and normal glass shrimp in literally any tank here at home!

I bought a lot of 100 from an online retailer and within a week they all died, then I tried buying 50 from a private seller and within a week, dead.

I recently bought about 15 from a shop and they all died too. I'm going to give up on them I think as they literally are just like flushing money down the toilet in this house!! I can breed Peppermints but can't keep alive stupid shrimp!!!
