Feeding ghost shrimp


Hi all,

I've got a few ghost shrimp in my 20 gallon tank and I was wondering if the flake food that goes to the bottom is enough for my ghost shrimp or should I be giving them something extra

Also I've got what appears to be a snail with a blue colored shell, I don't have a picture because I can never find it in my tank, I did a substrate change and found it so I know it's in there lol. What kind of snail could it be? Just so my tank doesn't get infested with snails.

Thanks,

Teckspeed

Don't quote me on this, but I think the flake food should be fine. Ghost shrimp are the least picky of shrimp. However, throwing some frozen food once in a while wouldn't hurt.

a bit of Brine shrimp or an algae waffer to nibble on is always like by them.
