How do people supplement feed their flower shrimp? Do you just add algae powder to the water or is there another method people prefer.
I just got two young flower shrimp today and want to make sure they do well. Both are currently exploring around the tank and faning both over the substrate and in the water. One even discovered the repashy super green that's out for my fish and is hovering over it...I'm not sure if it's eating some or just standing over it though, I don't seen it's fans out.
I went out and bought a small powerhead just for my 2 they sit on my sword leaves for hours just fanning and eating everything they catch. And they've been happy and healthy for about a year id assume you could just add the powder to whatever flow source you have that they fan on
I know that my destiny wasn't written in the stars, it was just a part of satellites....

Alright so much for my concerns about the flower shrimp getting enough to eat...now I'm worried about my fish managing to get some food with the two flower shrimp guarding it. Btw if anyone is interested flower shrimp like Repashy's Super Green. Very small bits of it fall off in the glass feeding dish I use and the flower shrimp hang around the cube and sweep the bottom of the dish for the fine bits that fall off. Unfortunately my fish aren't too happy with the situation as the (rather huge to them) shrimp usually bracket the cube of super green.
I've had same one for more than a year now. I never do anything special it sits on a log that gets a lot of current from my power head. The tank is heavily planted and 99% he just sits there and fans the water. What he does when the lights are out I have no idea. He regularly molts and when I add the bacteria supplement during water changes he seems to like that. Otherwise he's a cool little critter that needs for very little.
