    Cold Shrimp

    I recently ordered some Amano Shrimp from The Aquarium Plant Factory and then I went away for the weekend forgetting that they were being mailed to me. Well after 3 days in the mailbox during cold weather, naturally they all died. I sent them an email telling them what happened, and did not ask them for anything, I just told them what I had done. The next thing I knew they offered to replace them at a heck of a deal. They took this upon themselves without me asking for anything. That showed me that they really do care how their products work out for their customers, and they really have earned my future business. Also, I am an "oldster" who is "computer challenged" as my children call me, and was having trouble understanding an issue about the payment process. Tristan sent me another invoice I could work with. Very, very nice people.

    Small but mighty

    I was slightly nervous about ordering shrimp this time of year, as temperatures typically stay below freezing, but they were packaged well, and with a heat pack to keep them warm. After acclimating them slowly, they were released in my algae filled tank, and within the week the water is clear, and they are still going strong. I would highly recommend these to any tank owner looking to improve the health of an existing aquarium without the use of chemicals.

    Grateful aquarist

    I ordered 10 Amano Shrimp from aquarium plants factory and I was very pleased with my purchase. I have had no luck finding these shrimp at my local fish stores and I was hesitant to buy fish online but after this purchase I will use this company again.

    Died Within A Week

    I ordered ten of the shrimp with a few bunches of Anacharis. Two shrimp died within the first day which was expected because they shipped cross country. Over the next few days they dwindled down until there were none left. They were kept in a 10 gallon tank with some neon tetra.

    Best quality shrimp!

    My order of 5 arrived as 6 amazing shrimp. They have transformed my carpet of S. Repens (Also from Aquarium Plants Factory) that we’re previously covered in algae. Only took them a few days to show major results! Came in a little blue from shipping but in under 15 minutes they colored up beautifully. Some look almost red in good lighting and I am completely satisfied with them.

    Healthy shrimp

    I ordered 5 and they shipped 6. All were happy and healthy and had no trouble escaping my angels when I put them in the tank. These guys were the size described in the listing, hopefully they grow quickly.
