As Promised

Shrimp arrived in perfect condition. As soon as they were placed in the aquarium, they went to work on the algae population. Adapted well to their new environment.

Perfect

Box was in rough shape and a lot of the water had leaked out of the bag. Shipping was not kind. but despite being low on water and some trapped without really any water at all, all the shrimp seem to have survived! And now they are all well hidden in tank. looking forward to seeing them grow.

Active and healthy!

Very pleased with my amano shrimp! Ordered 10, received 12 and they are all doing well. They are a little smaller than I anticipated so I cannot put them in my betta tanks yet but no worries as I have a spare tank set up and ready to go! Will definitely order again in the future. Thanks Rob!
