Glad your tang is better. Sorry don't know the thread behind this post LOL

How long did you acclimate your shrimp and how did you do it?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Not to my knowledge, I keep a garbage can of RO/DI for the week as well as 4 5g jugs for emergencies. I've never had an issue. Just make sure you mix it up some if you salt your water after making it.

I had 5 cleaner shrimp 1.5 weeks ago, I have 2 left. The one got killed this morning I think by my pistol shrimp. How is your water? Shrimp are super duper sensitive to changes which is why as you know, they get a long acclimation.
