    Fast delivery and the shrimps were healthy. Thanks for the tons of freebies!

    The Amanos arrived alive and healthy. They are great escape artists, so for the first night I lowered the water level since I noticed they were skittish, even after drip acclimatizing them (a couple was trying to climb out the tank, 1 was successful). Might be because I still have a bit of nitrates in the water after cycling for 2 weeks (my tap water apparently has nitrates so water changes don’t change much, so I used purified water). I stuck more plants into the tank to help with the nitrates. pH, GH and KH are at acceptable levels. Now they’re pretty much at home.

    My amanos are alive and settled in pretty quickly in my tank along with my betta fish. At first they were skittish but in just a few hours, they were checking everything out and cleaning up the substrate and plants.

    The two critters are in good shape and adjusted well in my betta tank. My betta seems to have a good temperament that he tries to chase it once in a while like wanting to play but most of the time just let them do their thing.

    My amano arrived alive and well, it’s healthy and is trying to swim up my aquarium. They also included healthy live plants!

    I ordered 4 Amano shrimps. Placed the order on Monday afternoon and they arrived Tuesday morning (less than 24 hours). Upon arrival, 3 were regular size but the other one was humongous. They came with FREE aquatic plants (4 species – one 3 stems, the other one 2 stems, & the other two with individual 1 stem). This was just a “test order” because I plan to buy more items …, like other algae eaters – otocinclus, zebra nerite snail, ramhorn snail, mystery snail and a few carpet plants (Dwarf Baby Tears, Monte Carlo, Micro Sword grass) for my “negative space” foreground. PLUS future orders. I love it that I don’t need to go around shopping on-line with other shops. Almost everything I need is with Aquascape Philippines already!
