Yes I think that rules out any copper contamination from snail treatments - I didn't think Plants alive used it.

The extra aeration may help them. I'll see if I can find out more about your water hardness. The pH dropping like that sounds as though t has low buffering (kH) and if the water is very soft that would make sense. It may be too soft for the cherry shrimp, but it's easily fixed if that's the case.
