IME with amano shrimp is when they are introduced into a lower PH water than they came in they don't handle it well, What I did is the drip method Matt uses, I did this over a 5 hr time span, I did also add a air stone to the bucket. Keep in mind that you should use a big bucket,I used the 5 gallon variety,to avoid temptation of the shrimp climbing out. I also collected some hair algea and added to the holding tank for them to munch on, Also they did good with Java moss. I think(IMO) the shrimp are purged,like fish,prior to shipment to reduce fouling the water and they are very hungry when they arrive. I have had this experience with the amano and cherry reds.
I used a bare bottom 10 gallon for the shrimp,this allowed me to monitor them for the first several days that they arrived and with the smaller tank allowed me to ensure the shrimp were getting plenty to eat, I have added them directly to a planted tank,but the ones in the 10 seemed to acclimate better.
From there it is very easy to do 10% water changes with your tanks water to acclimate them to the water in that tank,usually it is less of a shock since they have been fattened up and already had a chance not to be stressed anymore than they were from shipping.

HTH,I know it has been very helpful to me in the past.

I called Jason this morning and gave him the additional numbers. The price will be around $1.40 each. Erik, he'll be expecting a call towards the end
of the week for numbers per bag and such.
From what I understand of the orders, here are the totals:

Damon=24
Erik=42
Matt=42
Russ=24
TOTAL = 132

I just found out we will be out of town this weekend so I won't be attending
the January meeting. I cancelled my shrimp order.

Since Sandy already added Russ' order I didn't edit my previous post Here are some price estimates for everyone based on $1.40 per shrimp:

Damon = 24 ($33.60)
Erik = 42 ($58.80)
Matt = 42 ($58.80)
Russ = 24 ($33.60)

TOTAL = 132 ($184.80)

Erik, I know this is just an estimate on the pricing, but if you need payment before you pick up my shrimp, let me know. I can snail mail you a check or PayPal you, whichever you prefer! I'm still not sure if I will be there or not

I would like to have either a check, cash, or PayPal from everybody going in on this by Saturday night. With moving out and all, I can't have my bank account out $200 for long.

Sandy - are you not buying any?

That's correct, I'm not in the big buy. We are leaving town Thursday
late afternoon and won't return until Sunday evening. I won't be around
to get them and acclimate them. However, Jason said he would have
extras, and I'm thinking about sneaking over on Wednesday evening to get
a few if they come in as scheduled.

Paypal addy is ejbock82 at hotmail dot com, though it might be best to wait until after the sale so I can figure out what tax is going to be.

Erik,

I picked up my 24 this afternoon, so you won't have to deal with my reimbursement. They look good, bigger than the last bunch. I put mine in a 15 gallon holding tank I have with a bunch of red cherry juveniles. I'll let you know how they do.
