There is basically no difference between fish and shrimp acclimation. You may want to do a search, this topic has been discussed before.

Agree with fruitpie, however, if you're getting Crystal Red shrimp, I would use drip acclimation. Cherry shrimp you should be o.k. with acclimating as you would most fish.
Good luck!

To minimize any kind of shock to fish or shrimp, I highly recommend using the drip method, especially for shrimp.
