yes, thanks for clarification.

actually when I first had my shrimp, I think I dumped them thinking I was doing the acclimation correctly, ditto for my recent incoming sorority. By that I meant, I did not apply PRIME upon opening the bag to detox the water. I really like her info on the water parameter upon opening the bag. I am not a chemist, so I learned a lot from that section.

I read somewhere, still looking for my bookmarks, that another guy preferred the one time immediate shock. I am not too sure. His rationale was that the acclimation actually prolonged the period of the shrimps in the yucky water even though there is gradule dilution with tank water that is supposedly cycled and less traumatic for the shrimp. Gotta find that one so everyone can compare notes and chime in....I love this forum, thanks aokashi =D
