newb to aclamating shrimp

I just bought some skunk cleaner shrimp, I drip acclimated them for about an hour doubling the liquid and then discarding doubling again then netting them in to the tank. this is my first acclimation how do I tell if they were improperly acclimated, was this method correct? they are hiding and not too social but I suppose this is because it new environment. is it normal for them to be so inactive, is there something I should look for? I know dumb post but thanks for your help...

Mobile invertebrates should be drip-acclimated for at least 2 hours, up to 6 hours even. I'm sure they are stressed so be sure to keep your hands out of the tank for several days and good luck
