IME scuds destroy shrimp populations. They predate on newly hatched babies as well as shrimp that just molted. If you can remove them do so. Just be aware, at that size they probably already released their babies, so this is going to be a battle to keep up with. Manually taking them out followed with fish eating the small ones keeps up with the population without having to nuke the tank. Good luck! It took me a while to get the one instance of this happening undercontrol.
