I bought 2 amano shrimp yesterday and was wondering if this is normal. 1 of them is straight and just explores the tank but this one is always on the floor arching his/her back. Should I return this one or is this normal behavior? Thanks in advance

I have a bunch of Amano shrimp in my 55g that do the same thing. I would consider this normal behavior.

Sometimes they are all just hanging out together munching on delicious algae and left over food. Other times they are by themselves, arching their 'back' like a cat stretching.

Amano shrimp are pretty hardy and adapt to most conditions as long as the water quality stays good. Hope that helps!
Alright thanks, just worried about the pH. I keep mine at ~6.9 and They need higher pH from what I read? I dont know if its a good sign, but they already stole food from RCS and are eating, so hopefully they are ok. Did a 3 hour drip acclimation yesterday just to be safe.
