I have 18 shrimp in a 90l tank. They have never shown much interest in any food I give them. I give them a pinch of spirulina every 3 days and three or four pellets of JBL Novo Prawn.
I've tried blanched vegetables, hibiscus flowers etc and the ignore them all. Dies this mean they have enough biofilm?
I have thousands of detritus worms, including some which are swimming about in the water column, which would suggest I am overfeeding, though this seems hard to imagine with the tiny amount I am putting in.
A couple of RCS females are berried so I am reluctant to give up the spirulina as I don't want the shrimplets to lack food when they arrive.
Hi all. I'm a newbie. I'm keeping a 90 litre tank with cherry shrimp and daphnia together. I'm feeding them spirulina and commercial shrimp food.
Does anyone know what else I should be feeding them? Anyone else have this mix of tankmates?

Hello, just wanted to show another food source I grow for my shrimp and snails.
Just how it looks, a plastic tub filled that gets lots of direct sun, I usually fill it with old water from my planted tanks to help the process.
Its a bit full ATM lol but there's a second tub underneath for extra strength.
I just grab a small pinch and put it straight in my shrimp tanks, they all go nuts for it.
Alternatively you could remove excess water then dehydrate it on baking paper to make a dry feed.
An hour or 2 later:
