    @Bruce Spiegelman I will work out my schedule tonight and let people know. I might be able to go pick up. Warning - my holding tank will be a bucket with tiny powerhead and heater, but I could just deliver to local peeps if they are around. We will work out if I should acclimate or leave in original water so they don't change their water too much too fast. I'll check in later after work

    I’m also in your area @MolaMola, in the Northgate part of Walnut Creek. I’m working all weekend and won’t be able to make it down to Redwood City. If you go, could you pick up mine? I’d come by and get them same day with many thanks.

    A bubbler may be better than a powerhead?

    Maureen, that would be great and I can definitely come by and pick up sometime that works for you. Thanks!

    If I get a chance to come by before Bruce, I can drop his off at his place too.

    Picked up my peps Saturday - thanks @Mark and @Peter B for the tank (and full menagerie) tour, as well as doing the order!
    Good call on the air pump suggestion. Weekend home is a bucket and although the PH was tiny, the shrimp all swam to it and climbed aboard. Fearing shrimp puree, I switched to airstone - glad I read your post and brought it home Friday.

    Thanks to Mark, Peter and Maureen! Got mine last night. They are either hiding in the tank or resting inside someone's stomach. I haven't seen a one yet. :)

    The first couple days mine really hid out-actually prob a week or more..
    Now one is all over the tank.
    Fun to watch him grab a hunk of seaweed and try to hog it.

    But yes always afraid some fish is going to make him a tasty morsel.

    Oh yeah - one of the peps spent the entire day in the front of our class frag tank rocking back and forth under an arch rock. I think he wants food and his pic may be all over Snapchat and Instagram
