Pretty much, just try to match the pH of the shrimp water to your own tank water by doing the drip method. It may take hours to match the pH depending on the seller's pH and your tank pH. I would take the time to acclimate them well since CRS and CBS are expensive. You don't need an air stone.

My best answer is SLOWLY, very SLOWLY.

Well I take one to two hours to acclimate shrimp to their new home.

Chances are, you already have them acclimated. If not, I wouldn’t worry about an air stone. I would guess that they probably put some sort of “bag buddy” in there and/or filled the bag with oxygen. Keeping the bag open, moving it around, adding tank water all while acclimating them will keep the oxygen level fine. I doubt those little guys could suck it all up that fast. Either way, if it makes you feel better, I don't see the harm in it. Good luck!
