Question Shrimp Feeding

Hello. I'm new to tanks, I'm in the process of setting up my 10-gallon tank. I'll have 10-12 cherry shrimp (and a betta) and I'm wondering how often to feed them? I have some fish food (I bought the wrong kind for the betta) that seems like it'll work for some feedings, and maybe some algae they can eat in the tank (still trying to figure out what it is), so... yeah. How often should I feed each thing? (wafers, veggies, fish food, that stuff)

Welcome to TPT!

We had a recent thread about Shrimp care that gives really great advice regarding feeding shrimp. This thread may also be something you would like to view for all the other advice experienced shrimp-keepers provide.

I feed shrimp about 2-3 times per week and only what they can eat within an hour or so. Any leftover food should be removed from the tank at that point.

Shrimp do best on a veggie-based diet. Organic spinach, zucchini, Indian Almond Leaves/leaf litter, that sort of thing. You can buy specialized shrimp food but it's not necessary.
