Mine took about a month. The smaller they are the better, baby shrimp seems to resist better from what I read. You can try with one baby shrimp and see how that fares.

THIS. We have no idea what shrimp species and the growth rates can vary significantly based on that alone, then temp, diet and other factors come into play beyond that.
