I have and use all three (Borneo Wild, Mosura, and Shirakura). My shrimp are hungry so they don't seem to care what I give them. They swarm on anything in less then a minute. Borneowild has more types of food then either Mosura or Shirakura so if you want one to enhance your reds or yellows or something like that then BorneoWild might be better for you. Borneowild is also cheaper by volume I think then Mosura and I think Shirakura as well.

Thank you. And you have the Borneo for sale as well, correct? There are too many types! What do you recommend as an all around healthy option?

You could try "Jake's Om Nom Nom" shrimp food sold in the Sale/Trade section.

I've tried just about every food out there and I always end up coming back to Jake's veggie sticks! I use a combo of his veggie sticks and his shrimp growth. by FAR the fav food in all my shrimp tanks.

+1 for Jake's food.

I've heard nothing but ridiculously great things about Jake's shrimp food. Another +1.

Good prices and handmade quality stuff.

Yes I do. Grow or Spinach are good staple foods. Variety is always good so if you can afford it I would suggest trying foods from different companies and alternating.

I have the commercial food and I can honestly say Jake's home made food drives my shrimp into a bigger feeding frenzy then any of the other products I use.
