Homemade food= monster shrimpball


I recently made some shrimp food with a bunch of different veggies and puréed them together with some other shrimp supplements and then dehydrated it. Once dried out I placed it in the tank and the shrimp went nuts for it, pretty cool.

That picture doesn't do it justice, it's pretty crazy watching them fight over the food.
