Special considerations, make sure there aren't shortages on biofilm and mosses.
Congrats on your success.
thanks for such a detailed response (as always), got a ton of moss but probably lacking in bio-film. Little early for the congrats as I'm sure i'm gonna nuke a few shrimp still
Well said. Dead on advice. Don't over feed and don't scrape the glass. They love the algae.
i'm trying not to feed much at all right now, i dont trust my tanks parameters and dont want any nasty spikes
i will let the sides and back have free run for growing algae and will only wipe down the front, thanks
Any variety of flake and pellet foods provide a balanced diet. I try to keep their diets to 80% veg 20% protein. Take the opportunity to be aware of the PH/gh/kh and moderate as needed. This provides the best chance of survival for newborns if they are within suggested range.
im trying to keep flakes and pellets to a minimum for the time being cause i dont wanna run up the chance of that stuff producing an abundance of phosphates and cause any major spike, i will try to keep in mind the ratio of 80/20
still waiting on a gh/kh kit
All I can add to the feeding question is: Don't overfeed in protein, it can cause molting issues. Get a food that has 50/50 of meat and veggie matter. +1 on getting an order from Jake (Somewhatshocked). His veggie complete makes my shrimp go nuts! Probably one of their favorites.
seems like the consensus is to get some of Somewhatshocked's food, im on it!
