Arrived fast, well packed, very beautiful, unfortunately 30% died upon/right after the arrival

Ordered a 10 pack of shrimp on Monday, shipped on Tuesday, and arrived on Thursday at New England from CA. I got 10, as ordered, but unfortunately one of them already was dead at arrival, and the other two were weakened and dead within 24 hours after moving into my fully cycled, toxic-free community tank. I think they were packed very well, but two days of travel were just too tough for them.

The rest of the 7 shrimps are healthy so far for 5 days. Their color is beautiful and consistent with the photos here. I would like to buy them again in the future, depending on how they will be doing and breeding in the next couple of months.

Brightly colored

Ordered a 5 pack of shrimp, received 6 though 2 didn't survive the journey. Another died within a few hours of placing them in my tank so I only have 3 of these guys left but they're still cool! Very brightly colored and love watching them explore my planted tank!
