I think that's a good idea, assuming you can catch him easily. Get him nice and fat and ready to go.

putting it into the main tank at night after the other fish have gone to sleep
Another good idea IMO.

but are skunk shrimp in general more difficult to keep than cbs?
IME no. If given good water, both are fairly hardy once established.

My cooler is currently set to 26 degrees,
Do you know what that is in fahrenheit?
To get the temp down in the acclimation container you could pour in a few cups of tank water over several minutes after the drip is done.

26 degrees celcius = 78.8 fahrenheit
(google can translate for you, just type "26 celsius in fahrenheit" in the search box)

I agree on the longer acclimation. Whenever I add anything to my tanks, I turn off the lights and sometimes feed a little food before that.

I know but I'm lazy That's a little cooler than I prefer, but should cause no issues. Good luck, keep us posted.

Just a small update... I finally added a new skunk shrimp again a couple of weeks ago, and everything went fine. I skipped putting him in the sump altogether, but drip acclimatized for 2 hours, then put him in after lights out. He seems to be doing good, still shy and hiding in the back though, but I hope he will start cleaning the fish eventually.

I think I've discovered one of the reasons the previous two died so quickly. I found out about a month ago that my salinity was running too low. I must have made some mistake on a water change, my meter was broken and showed a too high salinity value.
