An update. After a few days acclimation by adding freshwater, I put 10 out of 17(bought 18, 1 DOA) into my shrimp tank, well, only 3 made it the next day. Apparently, I was not patient enough during acclimation, I learned a lession there. I put the remaining ones into saltwater tank, they are doing very well there, I hope they will breed
The 3 in the shrimp tank are doing great, eating algae, including green spot algae on Anubias leaves(The anubias used to be very clean, GSA grew after I increased photoperiod to grow more algae for shrimps). Most of them are still small, like 5mm(much smaller than the Olive nerites I have), so I suppose I got the young ones.
Couple of pics of nerite in shrimp tank:
The dead ones make the best pose for the camera
