I don't think Plants Alive use snail treatments on the plants so it's not likely to be that.

After the cycle ended, did you continue feeding the bacteria with fish food? Did you do a water change before you put the shrimp in? Have you any oxygenation - airstone or similar? How hard is your water? (both gH and kH are important for shrimp).

Recheck the ammonia test as if there's any present at all it could account for the problem - shrimp are very sensitive to ammonia and nitrite.
