Got just what I ordered, 5 Fantasy Blue Dreams. The order came a day early and all looked healthy. Since arrival I see a max of 2 at a time in my heavily planted 15 gallon nano tank. Beautiful deep blue color. Based on this first time order with Flip Aquatics I would give them the highest rating,.
5 shrimp arrived alive and seem to have survived the first 72 hrs in the tank. I can only ever find 2 or 3 at a time but no bodies so that's good! And thanks for the sample
I have a 5 gallon Fluval tank with Fluval Stratum. I have a planted+ tank light (LED). The aquarium has amazon sword throughout the back and Staurogyne repens for carpet. The ammonia is 0, nitrites are 0, and nitrates are nearly undetectable. The tanks temp is 76 degrees. I keep re-testing the water as I have about 1 shrimp die a day since getting them. I can't detect anything that would kill them. I use RODI water with GH/KH+ (Salty Shrimp, Shrimp Minerals). I ordered 20 of these Fantasy Blue's and have about 9 left. One was dead on arrival but I didn't bother saying anything since they sent two extra.
I'm just going to toss some Purigen in there and hope it's something I can't test for. There's nothing else I can do.
If I could detect something that would place the blame on me, I wouldn't have left this review. The Amano shrimp that Flip Aquatics sold me were healthy and didn't die off like this at all.
I hope all of you buying them have better luck than I did. :-/
I ordered 10 blue dreams And when I got my shipment of shrimp there were 15 I appreciate it and I plan on ordering more
Shrimp arrived in great condition. Even recieved an extra one. Doing great in my aquarium. Would recommend Flip Aquatics to anyone, great service and fast shipping.
