Shrimp Snow

Recommended Posts

Where do I get some?  When I google it, all that comes up is recipes for cooking shrimp and snow peas, and then on the shopping side what comes up is "Natto Shrimp Snow."  The Natto Shrimp Snow is brown pellets.  What I see in people's pictures here is white flakes.  Can someone tell me how to order it or what the proper name is so I can get the right thing?  Thank you!

Hi Sheldon,

Personally Natto Shrimp snow isn't a spectacular product. My corys and fish seem to like it more than my shrimp 😂 but i believe the product you're looking for is one of these?

GlasGarten Shrimp Snacks Snow Flakes

Mosura Graze is also a good alternative though I havent been able to find many retailers selling the non plus version

Do make sure that you siphon out the remainders after a few hours as snowflakes are notorious for fouling up tank water (especially the white variety). I find that those in stick forms tend to stick together much better (no pun intended) 🙂

You guys know what these "snow" pellets are don't you??

$15 for a 30g pack !!

 

Just buy this ...

$27.50 for 20kg !

Yes. That is exactly what shrimp snow flake food is.

100% soy hulls. Used to feed horses. Anyone selling these products are repackaging them and calling it shrimp food and charging you multiple times the amount. 1kg of this will last you a lifetime of shrimp keeping. Sell the other 19kg to friends and profit.

I'm in Texas.  

 

Why does it turn into little white flakes in the water?

Just google it.

When you add water to the pellets, it turns into those flakes you see. It's just soy hulls.

      Newer A/C units now have auto on/off features. Maybe it's time for an upgrade @Zoidburg 😁 The things we do for our shrimp!

      @jayc Would it help at all to move this thread to General Questions/Discussions? Still looking for ideas on what these guys may be.

      I really enjoy cycling a tank from zero. Find fascínating the invisible process seemingly Out of the blue , where ammonia  rises, leaching from the substrate ( always use Ada amazonia or help shrimp substratos) then ammonia turns into nitrite and those two dissapear and you are left with nitrate, al i had to do  was wait, i also use seachem matrix or pondguru,s ultimate and that ends Taking Care of nitrate too.

      I think it might help to understand what water parameters you already have and what substrate.
      As far as the bird mineral blocks go? They should, in theory, be okay, however I'd be concerned about the metal that's in many of them. The metal that's meant to be tied to the bird cages. Wouldn't personally use it, because if extra calcium was required, I'd just add it from a remineralizer or get some form of calcium in another form to add to the tank.
