I usually take about 2 hours to acclimate my shrimp. I float the bag and every few minutes I put in a little water slowly. The LFS and my water is about the same ph and salinity.

I know on mine I just add a little water every 15 to 20 minutes. I do it about 2 to 3 hours. Alot of folks drip acclimate theirs.

I drip acclimate(one t0 tw0 drops per second) for about 2 hrs then float for temp. and pour out the water and add the shrimp and snails. either way works well.
Happy Reefing,
