Bought a bag of mixed shrimp to combat algae. Consist mainly of ghost, malayan and low grade crs shrimps. They did a great job on the algae, but now that the algae is all gone, I'm wondering if they will eat my java moss.

Amano shrimp are known to eat your moss. But you don't so I bet it would be fine. But you should feed them if your algae is gone, otherwise they might turn on the moss.

CRS eat algae? Didn't know that, but is a good thing - my tank has a little bit of algae and so that should be good for them I'd imagine.

Thanks guys. Just wanted to be sure. My shrimps currently eat algae and leftover fish flakes (i deliberately overfeed so my shrimps can be fed as well)

Shrimp love shrimp pellets, veggie wafers, helps to keep their coloring to the max, but feed good brands. Cheap brands do nothing for them. Mine love the OSI brand foods.
