Amano shrimps eating plants
I recently started a dutch style planted tank. Everything was going great untill a few days ago when I added amano shrimps to the tank.
These we're added to prevent algea since no signs of algea was present.
However, the lack of food (i think) had them completely wipe out my Althernanthere Reineckii 'Mini and did some damage to Reineckii Rosanervig and Heteranthera Zosterifolia.
I started feeding the algea waffers and removed the damage plants and leaves. They still eat the plants after 2 days and have know started eating a 4th plant type.
My question is should I try feeding them more, maybe with special shrimp food or remove some of them?
And please do not respond that amanos dont eat plants.
