I agree with what you say, Nubster. I just didn't want to take the chances, and as I said, I think 90% or more it's okay without the extra step. The media I moved from was in a tank with 300 PFRs in a 20G, running for 1 year, just for reference.
New shrimps in new tank are under a lot of stress, no need to add ammonia or, worse, nitrite to them. In my case, it's a few high grade chocolate female I don't want to mess with.
