it is adding a few ml of your tank water into the shrimp's holding place every 5min or so. slowly making the shrimp get used to your tank water.

You can DIY a simple dripper. See pic below.

Just position a container with water on top of your tank, fill the tube with water, use the suck to hold the dripper in place, control the water flow rate with the adjustment valve.

Happy shrimping.
