    Overfeeding?

    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 spir
  2. 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?

    Mulberry Madness

    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

    Good algae.

    Hello, just wanted to show another food source I grow for my shrimp and snails. Algae. 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:
  5. I picked up a packet of Hikari Crab Cuisine at the LFS and then noticed it contains copper sulfate. I was thinking of feeding some to my neocaridina davidi var. orange until I noticed the copper sulfate in the ingredients. Plus, I realize now Hikari also makes shrimp cuisine but I believe it also contains copper sulfate. The only thing the shrimpettes have ever been fed is biofilm and Marineland Color Enhancing Flakes which supposedly does not contain copper according to the company. Am I taking chances feeding the Hikari Crab Cuisine to them? Or, is this the type of copper that is actual
  6. Hello, so I was going to put this in diy but figured anyone can make food so its not really a diy, the more important aspect I guess I want to share or discuss is the nutrition side of things. Heres my diy shrimp/ fish food, Especially great for getting meds into your beloved critters. I in no way copied instructions on how to do this so I'm taking aaaaalll the creds lol. "Narcasist" What you'll need: (buy organic where possible but doesn't really matter) A blender(or preferably stick blender) Baking paper An oven and fan(preferably a dehydrator if you or

  9. Ever wondered what that sweet bread dough smell is coming from your neighbours fish room? Read on to find out the secret to that beautiful (to each their own right?) smell! Microworms are an easy to culture and maintain live food for your small/micro fish and especially for small fry. Size wise they fall somewhere between vinegar eels and baby brine shrimp (BBS) so is a good transition food prior to BBS. Nutrition wise they are a solid food source, but the fatty content may be a little on the higher side I believe so should not be a staple food permanently. Feeding a range of foods is bes

    Growing Kale for your Shrimp

    Kale is a great snack for you shrimp, plus it contains approximately 135mg of calcium per 100g. Kale can be dried, blanched or fed fresh to you shrimp. If you plan to grow it yourself simply purchase a packet of seeds or seedlings at your local hardware store or nursery and follow these steps to ensure you grow large, healthy kale. Growing Kale Kale can be planted anytime of the year but is best planted in soil temperatures of 10c to 30c. If you chose to purchase seeds chose a large pot or garden bed to plant them in, making sure it is in partial sun in summer and full sun in

    SHRIMP STICKS

    I have been feeding my shrimp, Shrimp Sticks from the Tropical range, since I have been keeping shrimp they love them the CRS swim away with the sticks to feed on them in peace. This link will take you straight to the information for Shrimp Sticks. http://www.tropical.pl/en/products/aquarium/foods/premium-line/bottom-feeders-foods/shrimp-sticks/ The link is self explanatory. I feed my fish a variety of foods from this range, my fish are healthier than they ever have been after using this product for the last three years. Have a look at the link and browse all foods available for your ow
  13. Hey guys, i have quite a few shrimp. And just looking to find out what commercially available foods are the best to use. As it seems a lot of people don't seem to like them all. Also how often are people feeding their shrimp? Thanks
  14. I would like to start a conversation on whether the golden rule for shrimp keeping : "Shrimp don't like change" applies to diet and feeding as well? I have received some great advice from Disciple and would like to find out what the consensus and experience is out there with different shrimp varieties. In the natural habitat, the diet will be quite consistent in terms of micro organisms, leaf litter types, pollens, insects etc and I am beginning to think that I have been approaching my feeding of my colonies incorrectly. I feed my shrimp different foods in rotation everyday to make u
  15. Thinking of using organic Chlorella powder to feed new born shrimplets. The powder is very very fine and would defiantly be manageable for the littlest of shrimp. My only concern is that it will foul the water faster then my current baby food, Biozyme so care would be needed not to over feed. Thoughts?
