Shrimp arrived very healthy. I've ordered livestock from various retailers over the years, and rarely leave reviews. This guy deserves a medal for setting up aquarists for success. Healthy, quarantined livestock; informative website; supplemental vids on YT...you couldn't ask for more. Well done and thank you!
