My 6 CRS came in the mail in fantastic condition, all healthy and happy. As far as the ratings go for crystal shrimp, these are incredible. Two of my shrimp are borderline pure red line quality. I ordered my crystal black shrimp through a competitor, and they were nowhere near the quality for the same price. The shrimp are excellent, but the packaging is what will have me coming back. There were cards inside each box that informed me on how to acclimate the shrimp and another that told me who packaged my order. Although things like that are small, it makes me trust flip aquatics a lot more than it's competitors.
All arrived alive and in good health. Acclimated them as Rob suggests in one of his YouTube videos, worked great. Easy steps. Did have several die about 1-2 weeks later. Not sure why. Water parameters were good, but did have a little heat wave during that time. Usually sits around 70-72 degrees F, but at some point in the day it worked its way up, didn’t exceed 75 as far as I could tell though. I’m not sure how rapid the change was as I wasn’t there at the time. I’m still leaving a 5 star, as it’s probably some fault on my end, not going to hold that against Flip Aquatics. Excellent company. I’d still recommend and will continue to purchase from them.
All 5+1 shrimp arrived in tact. They took to my tank quickly after acclimation, and have been active in cleaning since.
Extremely healthy Shrimp. All of them survived and are thriving in one of my planted tanks. Will be getting all my shrimp and nano fish from flip!
The shrimps got to me alive. And I am very happy with my order and shipping.
