If you were using a dechlorinator that doesn't also remove ammonia (a byproduct of the chemical reaction caused by dechlorinators) and/or doesn't remove chloramines, you may have your culprit. Another possibility is aging copper pipes. Copper and shrimp are no bueno. Were you on base? Military bases have a long and sordid history of supplying bases with water that is not actually safe to drink.
It wasn't just shrimp, it was fish dying left and right. Otherwise I'd say it was for sure the copper because the house was from the 50s.

It probably was the chloramine. Regardless it makes me nervous.
