No need to feed a full wafer, even split in half. That's a lot for that many shrimp. I would go with 1/4 of a wafer at most, but that's just me. That one shrimp looks like it caught a bacterial infection and died from that. Keep check to make sure your other shrimp don't catch it tooo. Good start though!

I thought I was supposed to feed as much as they will eat they eat most of a full one over night.

Some of my shrimp are opaque they are not see through anymore... is that a sign they are molting? I have noticed them get that way and then I don't see them that way anymore. I'm hoping they are just molting when they do that. Lol
