Question Shrimp QT?

Should shrimp be quarantined before introducing to a tank? Are bacteria, viruses, etc., transmitted between shrimp and fish?

Well, not really. You could QT just in case of there's some known parasite from shrimp to fish. Shrimp are known to have parasites in their heads, (Eww!!) but when they reach the stomach acids, they're gone. So you're good!
