One key takeaway i found is the need to be prepared to acclimatized Shrimp as they are sensitive to water conditions.
My Notes : Planted, CO2, Small-Medium size tank, Plants, Shrimp species, Fish types, Tank layout, Food, Lights, Soil, Shells, Mini Net with long handle, external drip hanger, Wood/Stones, Mini Canister,Scissor - 14" - Curve, mini-net.
Few things to watch,
The planted tank has to be ready and stable before buying Shrimps
Netting rims are hard and pressing the shrimp against the plastic bag can cause injury
Avoid transfer that expose the Shrimps to air
Especially when they are stressed. Moss to calm the Shrimps
Spend an hour to transfer tank water to the shrimp
Do not transfer water back to the tank to avoid external introduction
Shrimps molt when environment parameters change. During this period their skin is very soft.
Remove fishes that will attack them.
Do not feed them till they have settled comfortably
