get a length of airline tube, the clear flexible tube used with sponge filters and air stones, put a knot in it, and start the siphon so water is going from the fishtank to a bucket. adjust the knot until the water drips about once or twice a second maybe a little more, dump the shrimp, and all of the water in its bag into the bucket and let it fill up to twice the amount of water that was in the bag, dump half of the water back into the tank, and let the drip fill it until it is double again and then you should be good.
does that make sense?
and you are not trying to put him in freshwater right?
