I think thats one of those closely guarded secret kind of things. That being said I'm going to be ordering some soon along with some "Microorganism" just in case my crs ever decide to breed. From what I read around the net a good number of successful breeders feed it exclusively.

Sure..right here. Look in Swap n shop, I think Chikorita was selling some.
I was wondering if the shirakura had calcium in it? Maybe I will ask them.
Anyone know japanese?

As stated above I am using Shirakura food but just started a week ago. Before that I was feeding Hakari Crab Cuisine and Sinking Wafers. Please let me know if switching foods will make much of a difference.

Thanks.

I noticed my shrimp will swarm the shirakura food much more then the hakari or anything else i have fed them (except maybe morusa which they seem to like as much). Problem is I can't find Mosura anywhere.

I have some Shirakura food available if you are looking for some.

did you get the little spoon with the micro powder? If so its one spoonful for 40gal's I think. For the other stuff just feed them what they will eat in a few hrs. I feed some of my shrimp tanks up to 5 pieces a day.
