Important: Care Instructions
Do not put the bag of shrimp in the tank in an attempt to let the water temperatures equalize in the bag. This is what you would do if you went to the local fish store and bought a fish. The bag that the shrimp are shipped in are specialized "breather bags" which do not require air inside of the bag. The bag actually "breathes" allowing oxygen in and CO2 out. Submerging the breather bag with the shrimp in it will cause a lack of oxygen, suffocating the shrimp.
Acclimating with tank water:
Use a non metalic clean bowl.
(1) Take a cup to scoop your tank water into. Look at the amount of water in the bowl and estimate how much water volume you think 10% is. Take the cup with the new tank water and pour the equivalent 10% into the bowl that you estimated. Basically you are increasing the water by 10% inside of the bowl with new tank water, slowly acclimating the shrimp.
(2) Pour the same amount you poured the first time (original 10% estimate) into the bowl every 2 minutes until you have tripled the water that was originally in the bowl (total of 40-45 minutes).
(3) Afterwards your bowl water is 1/3 old and 2/3 new tank water.
Your shrimp are good to go at this point as they have adjusted to the temperate and water conditions of your new tank having followed these steps carefully.
