Is it a hair algae ball that they are munching on?

I had one tank full of it but took it away because people said too much hair algae will create poison(?) And strangle the shrimp to death

I have tanks full of that stuff too, mostly when cycling. I trim them down a bit but most of the time shrimps will take care of them.... I don't know anything poisonous from it or it strangles shrimps/shrimplet, but I think too much of it will reduce the water circulation and creates dead spots in the tank. Also, it can be an indication of chemical imbalance in your tank.

I was growing it on purpose like a farm, thinking that it could be nice "food" for my shrimps but was scared by the articles. You now proved me that it can be done :-D

really like the Dream Blue's and Midnight Rili's.

Looking for some like these for an upcoming tank. Can you tell me where you can purchase these?

The market in Japan is huge, but language is a barrier. Even if you use online translator you still don't the full picture. I'm orginally from Taiwan where shrimp keeping is big. In any city you will find many serious breeders with amazing shrimps. I know a few guys there with 100+ tanks and it's just a hobby for them, although hobby normally translates to $$$ somewhat in the culture there together with bragging right.
Thanks.

A family friend lived in Japan for a few years (business) . He kept cichlids and said that he has seen cichlids there which he has never seen in USA.

Yeah, I'm from Taiwan and there are fish/shrimp there that are hard to find here in North America.

Those are Prodibio prodibio biodigest vials. I use it when introducing lots of shrimps to a tank. In theory it boosts the beneficial bacteria colony, I use it just because it has worked well for me and the empty vials look cool in tanks.
