Those vials are Prodibio biodigest and start up. I've been adding those when I add hundreds or even thousands of shrimps in a tank even when the tank is cycled. For that 22G tank, I added 1000-1100 opae ula (didn't count so have to trust the seller ;-), only lost like 3 in the first week and no casualty thereafter. No water change has been done for the last month I've had them, feed them like once or twice a week. The toughest shrimps I have ever dealt with.
Once 5 of them jumped out of a container (I was collecting some to bag them), they laid in a puddle of water that barely kept them wet for like 30 minutes. I dropped them back in the tank when I saw them and everyone was a swimmer ;-)
Yeah, I have to say I was surprised when I received the shipment. Almost all of them are super red. It's not to my credit or anything I do, it's just this shipment is super red. S
Some are saddled at the moment, I read somewhere water change will help a lot for breeding, I'll keep observing and see what happens.
