new shrimp

I'm planning on getting a couple of cleaner shrimp do they need to be QT'd for a while? Also what is the correct acclamation process for them?

I drop everything. Also, I don't quarantine anything because im an idiot, but when I used to, I didn't quarantine inverts. Do what you want though. It can only help .

Inverts can't host ick. It can b ON them, but it can't actually live off of them. That's why.
