They came in good condition. Thanks.
They arrived in great shape and are still doing great!!!
I’ve ordered pumpkin shrimp 2 times from Flip Aquatics. They always package the shrimp with care and detailed instructions on how to properly acclimate. In the first order all arrived happy and healthy but in the second order two arrived DOA but they have impeccable customer service and responded right away and gave me a refund for the two DOA shrimp. All around great company!
All of my shrimp delivered alive and healthy. they were an assortment of juveniles and adults, I do not know how many are male or female but I don’t really mind, they’re so fun to just watch. Flip customer service was so nice and they were packaged with care with detailed instructions on how to properly acclimate. The picture taken was day one of putting them in the tank
They shrimp that arrived were much more beautiful than I expected. I'm very grateful for them, they're trucking around my tank right now!
