Personally I think a small amount of shrimp food is always beneficial for them - I don’t think they need anywhere near as much as shrimp food tubs will tell you to feed but I would always try and give them some shrimp food a couple of times a week - perhaps more especially so with Caridina shrimp as they’re a bit more fragile.jacksdad wrote: ↑Sat Nov 09, 2019 13:25 pmThanks again, I'm really happy with my 'little tank' addition, the shrimp are a pleasure to watch, this morning I've found a moulted shell hanging on a plant, and counted 8 out of the ten added on Wednesday night
The root is full of algae, and there's some small bits of fish food on the substrate, do I need to add shrimp food?
Dennerle shrimp food isn’t expensive and has good reviews. I have read recently that GlasGartens Bacter AE is fantastic stuff but it’s more of a specialist shrimpy biofilm additive than food. I’m getting some for my future shrimp. There’s some good reviews on YouTube of different foods - Pro Shrimp have a really good range of brands.
