All alive!

I ordered five, and received six Amano shrimp! All alive on arrival. I can't say for sure how many are still alive after two weeks, since they easily disappear in my heavily planted tank. Usually I'll see nothing or only one, other times I'll see at least four at once. There's no other animals other than seed shrimp and possibly cyclops in my tank, and I haven't found any bodies either, so I assume they're all still in there.

Shrimp were added to a high tech planted tank (CO2 remained off during acclimation) with a KH of 5 degrees.

All arrived well and they disappeared in my 29gal. They seem to be doing good so far when they show themselves 😆. Thank you!

Happy little shrimp

As with all orders from Flip Aquatics, these amanos we're well packaged and healthy when they arrived. Followed their acclimation instructions and they're living their best lives in my planted tank.

Excellent Amano Shrimp

I have ordered two 10 packs of Amano shrimp from Flip Aquatics so far. Both orders arrived with 13 shrimp and suffered no deaths. The packaging and acclimatization instructions were top notch. Not only does Flip have the best price for Amano they also have the best genetics. Both batches of shrimp were about 3/4 of an inch when they first arrived. The shrimp from my first order are about 1.5” long after 2 months and the 13 new shrimp have survived their first week and have quite the appetite for algae!
