Last night my Red Fire Shrimp jumped on my Yellow shrimp when she's molting. I have to remove the Yellow shrimp and to a new tank to stop the onslaught.
This morning she successfully molted and living in new tank fine.

Do you feed frozen bloodworms? Or live? Or freezedried?
I have some freezedried bloodworms I feed other fish. Right now the only protein my shrimp get is from hikari algae wafers or Fluval pellets, maybe twice every ten days.
I think Im going to up the feeding frequency and try to add some extra sources of protein to their diet.
Also just to update, the attacked cherry shrimp hasnt moved in ten hours, so Im assuming its dead. Im debating putting it back in the shrimp tank for their breakfast.

|ravensgate||Bloodworms, crab bites, even algae wafer are high in protein. I feed frozen bloodworms like once a month but I feed Earthworm powder as well (sparingly) which is a good source of protein. Mosura Excel is another good protein food.|

|Jello||What kind of protein do you feed your shrimp?|

|bradlgt21||I think its more then just tiger shrimp. I used to feed my shrimp only veggie pellets and no protein. I had both Malawi and Cherries and I witnessed 3 Malawi shrimp chasing a berried Cherry around and attacking her, she finally dropped all of her eggs and ran away from them and they swooped in and started eating the eggs. Mean little critters sometimes.|

|abc||whoah... nice to know. wow, I have to think about the right balance of veggies and proteins. BUT.... does the ferociousness of tiger shrimp include tangerine tiger shrimp? TT are a different species than the regular tigers so I'm wondering if TT are just as ferocious as the regular tigers or this is just a peculiar feature of tigers and don't apply to TT|
