I love that you always send an extra! all made the trip to MI in the middle of winter just fine, the heat pack was cold but all survived and still doing well a few weeks later. Thank you
Ordered 10 and got 12 healthy little shrimp, they came in really good packaging too. I acclimated them according to the directions and a week later I’m watching them love their new home. They have a lot of pep and nice color, I already have another tank cycling with plans for more soon.
I ordered these shrimp around January 4th and wanted to wait a couple of weeks to give a better review once the shrimp settled in. I bought 10 USA Bred Pumpkin shrimp which arrived within the 2-3 day shipping time that was provided. the shrimp were sealed in a breather bag with no causalities however the bag was fairly cold despite coming with a heat block. I attribute that to my local weather in the midwest where it is regularly below 20F during this time of year. Despite this, everyone was alive and active. I drip acclimated the shrimp for 2.5 hours and moved them into the tank. Since then, everyone is molting and swimming all over the tank. This is my first time keeping shrimp so I think research on good water parameters and buying quality shrimp from Flip Aquatics has been what has helped me start of strong with no deaths so far.
Specs on shrimp:
I was really surprised how colorful the shrimp were compared to the photos online. They don't do them justice. As expected with shrimp, there is a lot of variation in deep redish-orange to a more transparent yellow orange. Regardless, I am really happy with the color output in these shrimp and how they have perked up in color since getting more comfortable in there tank. Unfortunately, I really want to breed shrimp and I think out of 11 total shrimp I got, only 1 is male and the rest are saddled females. Hopefully I can get them to breed in due time but we shall see. (The latter point isn't really a complaint on flip aquatics, I just wish we could request ratios for the folks that want to try breeding). With due time, hopefully that 1 male can get my colony growing. Attached are some pics that I took early on around week 2.
Thank you so much for your order and your review! I am so sorry you only received 1 male. If you plan to place an order in the future please add a note to your order requesting number of males and females and we will do our best to fulfill your request. If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com.
All the shrimp I ordered arrived alive and healthy. Their coloring is amazing. Thank You so much Flip Aquatics. I'm looking forward to my next order.
My order came well packed and very healthy. As others have noted, I received more shrimp than what I ordered and even spotted a baby in the bunch. Decent mix of male and female shrimp too. I would certainly order from flip aquatics again. If quality and treatment of livestock is important to you then this is your spot. A week has gone by and none of the animals have died or show signs of illness.
