I can't kill rcs

I ordered some red cherry shrimp (thanks epicfish!) and I was dripping them and doing what not to be ready to go in the tank...well I dropped one and couldn't find it for the life of me. I made lunch and came back to find the shrimp on my carpet, under a chair.

Out of curiosity and a bit of desperation, I put it in a cup of tank water. Twenty minutes later, it's swimming around like opting happened. It had to been out of the water for at least 15 minutes. Crazy

That's nice. I dropped an Amano shrimp on the floor and the darn thing was crawling like a roach. I put it back in the tank and it behaved like nothing happened.

I don't think they can breathe air but as long as they're wet they'll survive a mishap like this.
