    Do you quarantine shrimp, or just do a slow acclimation?

    What kinds of diseases can ghost shrimp carry/obtain?

    Slow acclimation should be fine. You may use quarantine method when keeping fancier/more expensive shrimp like Crystals. But with Ghost shrimp they are treated as feeders in the industry, so they are lucky to have made it into your aquarium alive, haha.

    Thank you, @Dalfan

    And they can't bring anything harmful to my tank/fish (just to be sure)?

    In theory they could have bacteria that could cause bacterial infection in other shrimp. But to my knowledge, they can't carry anything that could harm fish. Now the water they are in could have nasties, so don't dump in the bag water and you should be fine.
