I got 12 CRS today:19: 2 of them are berriedthumbs2:
my question is, how long to acclimatize them for, they have floated in the bag for 3 hrs and now are being drip acclimatised for the past hour, should I leave them much longer or should they nearly be good to go?
Any advice on catching them?

Drip them for a few hours in cup or similar by adding the bag water to the cup, that way when you are done you can pour the water out of the cup through your net, no need to try to catch them and no shrimp left behind, caught up in the bag. If you have that problem when pouring them into the cup, pour the shrimp out, and for any that get stuck to the side or whatever just rip open the bag and submerse it in the cup

That's a good trick. With fish I usually acclimate in a 5G bucket. When I'm done catching the little devils can be a pain sometimes. I have some RCS coming this week as well so I'll have to keep that in mind.

I paid 20 euro for 6, I think that is around 35$ so that price sounds the same
