When introducing them to their new tank, please acclimatize them slowly in a bowl over a period of several hours, mixing your tank water with the water they came in, slowly increasing the amount of tank water until you have a mixture of 1/4 transport and 3/4 tank water. After that net them out and put them into their new home. It is normal for the shrimp to lose a little colour during transport. As soon as they are in their new tank they will colour back up to their full intensity.
Our shrimp are shipped in breather bags. Please do not float these in your aquarium, or this will cause oxygen exchange to cease.
