As the title says, I ordered 15 and got 18 with 2 DOA. So started with 16 and so far so good. The 16 are all looking great and already had a couple molts. I use salty shrimp gh/kh as recommended by flip and a TDS of 200. They are active and grazing. Couldn't be happier to be honest. Will definitely be doing further business with this business.
I ordered 5 and all arrived alive but unfortunately 2 of them died after one day. It's most likely my own fault due to water condition and acclimation. On the other hand the other three are doing fine. I am totally happy with my purchase.
I received my shrimp on the 23rd, and have had them for 4 days since. I was given 13 live shrimp (bonus shrimp, how kind!) and they were all stunning. However, after 2 days, almost all of them just dropped dead and I cannot determine the cause! The tank was fully cycled, I drip acclimated them, and yet?? Needless to say I am disappointed and sad, and I am not sure I feel comfortable spending money on more replacement shrimp after spending almost $70 on what happened here.
The order literally arrived the following day, plus an extra shrimp was included. After a week I have only lost 1, all the the others are doing great. Thanks for the great products! Highly recommend!
3 died within 2 hours, other 2 dead by next morning. Water parameters all within range, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites. used drip acclimation.
I have 5 shrimp tanks over last 2 years, so I can only guess that something happened in transit that they weren’t able to recover from.
very disappointing to end up with none. Total loss for me.
