i just bought a cleaner shrimp earleir today, and dipped the bag for 1 hour in the water, was doing fine, and placed him in a bucket with his water, and began drip accumulating him. I came back 30 min later, and hes all curled up, barely moving, but still moving. I touched the bucket water, and compared to the tank water, is a big dif. having not alot water in the bucket, i guess it temp dropped fast in the bucket. compared to the tank, with pumps, lighting etc.
but now i dont know what to do? im thinking theres really nothing i CAN do, and to just wait it out, but maybe theres a way?(praying) i feel bad, i havent even had em yet, and hes already dead.
Anyhow, sorry if i posted htis year, was hoping id get more immediate exposure and response.
