some sites say yes it helps keep it fresh, some say no, it can make it damp

any help appreciated

I've never kept dried food in the fridge. You should make sure it's in an airtight container to stop moisture getting in. The fridge itself won't make it damp. Being open anywhere will.

I dont store dried fish food in the fridge. It's just under the tank in the cupboard or on a shelf.

The shrimp food I keep in Tupperware boxes, including the dried veg in a different Tupperware box.

My Frozen food goes in freezer. Shocking I know  Tongue
