    All arrived safely, I ended up with 15 shrimp, 13 F1 hybrids and 2 Panda Tawian bees so the breeder has been extremely generous ( around an extra 34 in shrimp from 2 extra f1's and 1 panda taiwan bee)

    For acclimatization I used the drip method for 2 hours. Although the breeder's tanks are kept roughly at the same parameters as mine (GH 5, KH 0) my tds is slightly higher (mine = 150, his =130) so may be the length of 2 hours was a bit excessive but you can never be too careful.

    That's awesome, bonus shrimp! They look outstanding, too

    You're absolutely right about taking your time acclimating, too...I've never read anywhere that slow acclimation caused problems, whether shrimp or fish..."better safe than sorry" is one of my favorite maxims

    Again, great job on the tank, you're going to have some happy shrimp!

    Posh indeed! I really like that! I don't know if you mentioned this already, what are those small blue spheres? Marbles?
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Those blue balls are called Bee Balls.
    " Bee Ball is a ceramic ball made of Bamboo Charcoal that slowly releases anions and minerals. The negatively charged parameter creates a refreshing natural environment that vitalizes metabolism and bacterium activities. It strengthens immune system of shrimp over time, as well as removes odor and impurities thus improving water quality. The Calcium based mineral also aids in molting, color and shell enhancement"

    I also thought I would share this picture with you as it was a very nice surprise to me:
    20140519_171405.jpg
    As you can see, the white areas are starting to turn blue as it matures. I originally thought this was a regular Taiwan Bee Panda, however the blue colouration makes it, in fact, a Shadow Panda. These retail on seller websites for around 40 each in the UK. Considering I paid 10 to get two pandas, one being a regular panda (20 each usually) and now I have a Shadow panda (40 each usually) I am very happy.
