With crimson on my Rili's and TT's, what will happen to the clear parts of the rili's? And what kind of effect does it have on shrimp without the red coloration?

Well, I guess there's worse bugs to have than adoring shrimps and buying nice things for them.

Yea, I've been thinking about starting a crack addiction, but I just don't have the spare cash after buying all the shrimp stuff I buy

#thisisnttwitter.

I have a question for you guys who have used BW products. If you had to choose one, which would you use?

I got my stout and its interesting I guess. Its annoying getting it into the tank and to settle to the bottom without the filter blowing it all around for hours. I mix it with my shirakura CRS baby food. One tiny tiny spoon thing I have, each. Wix it in a water bottle and dump into tank.

How often should I do doing this? So far ive been doing it every other day.

Stout.

(And to the another commenter - BW and Repashy aren't exactly things you can compare. Different worlds.)

Does anyone else who have cherries and are using grow and frenzy notice that the only things that eat this are your snails? My cherries don't even seem to notice they are in the tank.

My cherries love the Grow and Frenzy. If yours do not swarm to it then I would guess two things: 1. You are feeding too much 2. Your shrimp might be sick. For example, I feed one little square of Grow for about 40-50 shrimp every 2 days. Frenzy gets cut into pieces which are as small as the grow and same feeding ratio applies.

On a side note:
I contacted BorneoWild and they posted this thread on their Facebook page.

to be honest I never fed my shrimp anything. I let them scavenge and eat algea. I bought the BW food so they would have something to eat. At first the ate grow but then they stopped. I added frenzy today after a water change and nothing. I think it was bc the water change they didnt touch it. I will try again tomorrow. They do eat all the fish food that the fish don't eat though.
