Default 10 gallon painted red shrimps

After an issue with the pH too low, I've netted 6/10 shrimps and brought along 20 new painted reds with me. They're currently dripping.

I've dripped the shrimps until the pH in the container was the same as the tank. There was a bit of an ammonia issue, but that was easily resolved with a mature sponge filter. I did a water test and here are the results:
pH: 7.6
high range pH: 7.4
GH: 9
KH: 6
ammonia: 0 ppm
nitrates: 0 ppm
TDS: 199

The shrimps are shrimps swimming around pretty fast. Would this be normal behaviour?
