Funny stuff! Well all may be ok anyway. It looks like it may have been a part of them molting. Iím not seeing anymore shrimp that have it and no bodies. Looks like several just molted. Weird because I have watched them molt and never noticed the ring line as a part of the process.

I am going to be looking into some different non animal proteins to throw into the mix as well based on the recommendation. Spirulina, which I had no idea until just now thatís itís powdered Blue Green Algae (Cyanobacteria), looks like a nutrient power house with 50-70% protein. I read that shrimp should only make this a small portion of their diet so maybe a once a week meal? For those of you that use it whatís your preferred method? I would like to avoid scooping the powder in as I do have a small population of Planaria that I would like to keep in check.
