Ordered 5, got 6. All very well packed and all looked good. All 6 healthy and active 1 week later.
All arrived alive,look great in my planted tank.
I really wanted to find a high color yellow with a good golden back and these are just perfect.
Although Ive never had shrimp, after the measure of research on my behalf i was sure i wouldn't experience any probems. The 75 gallon tank they were being house in is pristine, meticulously kept, with water parameters meeting what the plant factory suggets. On arrival one clearly didn't like the trip. Very tediously introducing them over a fairly lenghty time frame, actually dripping aquarium water into the shipping bag, thereafter introducing them to their new home, i crossed my fingers. The one i had mentioned that didn't fare well during the trip expired within hours. Its now been several days and unfortunately a second one has expired also. This is not being written to opine the plant factory is substandard. Meerely to suggest to anyone considering spending a fair amount of money with hopes of enjoying these creatures it would be wise to really consider the expenditure. Its a fair amont of money for what i now consider a very "iffy" proposition. The remaining three appear now, after several days to be comfortable and happy.
