Frankly you'be lucky if they live till 1 yr. Sometimes they just die on you suddenly although there is nothing wrong with the water. Others are still happily swimming about.

The shrimps won't last very long without filtration. Suggest get a hang-on filter at least for yr tank. On the fan 24 hr. Put some moss to absorb nutrients from the water and also on the FL light for 8 hrs a day for the plant. Change 10% water with overnight water once a week. Don't overfeed as this will dirty the water very fast.

Don't think adult shrimps attack shrimplets. It could be the water conditions that they die.
