Appreciate the tip, my shrimp have been "marinating" (can't really think of a better term tbh) for a bit over 48 hrs so they should be ready soon. We shall see how it works.

I appreciate the offer. If my package isn't slated to be here soon, I very well may take you up on that offer. Appears you are only about an hour away from me. Thank you
