Brine shrimp genocide?

Dunno why, but theres a lot of brine shrimp corpses littering my sand. Nothing changed, water parameters are good (not perfect, but within FOWLR specs for sure), and yet there are these little brown corpses littering my sand with other brine shrimp just scampering around my LR as if nothing happened.

LR, some base rock, and a clown fish. Its just finished a moderate cycle.

Salinity 32ppm

Everything within specs aside from nitrates at 20 on last test.

If that is the case then its just a bloom or cycle of whatever it is and it has increased its numbers so it runs out of food and dies off. This will occur throughout the life of your tank. The fact that the numbers were there in the first place is a good sign of a healthy tank
