Shrimp Love Mulberry

Posting with the kind approval from @NoGi. We are looking for 20 volunteers to trial a new food supplement for ornamental shrimp. This is a mulberry leaf based diet, and our experience is that even the most finicky of shrimp love this food! During the development phase we have worked with a public aquarium and retail stores, now we would like feedback from dedicated hobbyists before we launch this product into the market.

20 people will be selected for the trial… SKF subscription members will be selected first followed by regular members. Send us a private message and we will arrange a free sample to be shipped.  In return we ask for your genuine feedback and perhaps some pictures of your shrimp eating the food :) Offer is only available to members living in Australia.

yeah always see people posting pics of their shrimp on the leaves and they seem to love the stuff. Would be interesting to get some feedback on how various shrimp take to mulberry in this form.

I'm down, I've already got my own tree but happy to compare how it goes vs straight from the source.

Hello Foxpuppet,

Thank you for the offer, we will send you a private message to arrange details.  We would love to hear feedback on the response to real mulberry leaves vs the prepared food!

      Thanks to the guys at Shrimp Love Mulberry i recently received a pack of the new Mulberry based shrimp food.
      The pack contained 4 syringes of mulberry shrimp food and an instruction card for storage and feeding. Nothing to complicated there, just store the syringe you are using in the fridge and the spare ones in the freezer. Great being able to freeze the syringe and all as you know it is not going to go off so you can order enough for 6 months or more and that will save on shipping costs.
      So like with any new aquarium product i headed straight to the shrimp tank to give it a go. My thinking at the time was that the product would be a bit like Repashy but softer so it could be easily syringed. My tank has a good flow in it so it is always a bit hit and miss dropping food from the surface to the feeding bowl, like wafers or crack, but i'm getting pretty good at hitting the mark. I held the syringe at about the right point to get the bowl and gave it a little squeeze. This is not how you do it...Lol 
      The product came out in a nice tube about 2-3mm wide, like a soft bit of crack, and then hit the flow of water. It then turned into a snow of mulberry goodness as it fell through the water column and was evenly distributed throughout the entire tank. This is not a problem for giving the shrimp a general feed, providing you dont over feed, but there was now no way i could see if the shrimp were attracted to it specifically so i could give it a subjective review. The shrimp got excited as they knew there was food somewhere in the tank but i think it took 10sec for every shrimp in the tank to find some of it and settle down for a munch.
      A few days later it went a lot better. 
      Getting the hands wet i put a bit into the feeding bowl and sat back with the camera ready. My display tank has a mix of RCS, Native WA Glassies and a few Pygmy Cories. I have found that the Palamonties Australis are more of a carnivore than RCS and will rather eat live black worms than actual shrimp food. Fortunately, or unfortunately for a review, the much larger glass shrimp got into the food bowl first and the RCS were kept at bay until it had it's fill. I had put in about enough food for a normal 3-4 day feed and it was gone in about 2 hours. My normal harder food last about 6-8 hours for the same amount.
      Future feeds will be done from the surface again as i dont over feed and the distribution in the tank ensures all the shrimp, even the new ones, dont get muscled out.
