The bottle the shrimp came in had spilled all through the package, leaving it approximately 1/4 full. The shrimp were very sluggish. I luckily had a little bit of the extra water left from an order +4 months ago. Surprisingly, after about 3 days they finally perked up and are now fine.
Of the 3+1 - only 3 survived. The +1 was hung up in the algae. I was wondering if shipping with that much algae might be a problem, but it is a difficult call as it may buffer the shrimp from hitting the sides. The 3 are doing fine. Thanks.
I've purchased a few things in the past...5 yrs. The communication, the product is 5 stars always for me.
Shrimp arrived well packaged and thriving. Comes with algae.
I had my container from before and just ordered new shrimp. Sadly they all died within a few days. I am not sure if it because of the container. Previously when I got the original set up the shrimp lived for a year. Sad but I will order some more shrimp soon.
