The combo most people use to treat Columnaris is Kanaplex and Furan 2. I am not sure they are shrimp safe. If you do fail to treat and lose the fish. you'll have to bleach everything down and most likely throw your plants out. I would move the shrimp and bleach everything between tanks. Columnaris can live up to 29 days without a host. So, I suggest if you have the option of returning them. I would. Kanaplex and Furan 2 ran me about 20 bucks and I had to ship it. You can slow it down with a high salt concentration. Like 1 tablespoon per gallon, till you get the meds if you decide to go that route. Just make sure not to use things between tanks its VERY CONTAGIOUS.
