So I bought two bamboo shrimp and one immediately went to the bottom and started filter feeding and the other went crazy swimming at the top until he rested on my algae scrapper at the water level for two days, now he's at the bottom with the other shrimp what's up with this?

they are so cute and hilarious to watch (when they are active) also the spas thing I would guess is normal for the simple fact that all of mine have done the same thing every freaking time they are introduced to my tank. Nessy my newest and largest bamboo shrimp likes a sponge that I added to my tank its blue idk what it is actually used for but he eats off the thing all the time

Both of them are ok now, they just sit and filter feed all day never moving, only at night. They definitely are not active day shrimp though. Yours is probably eating the microarganisms on it.

Ya because if they are eating food off the bottom then there isn't enough current for them to filter feed. ???

mine is the third most expensive fish in my tank currently, I have an albino bristlenose pleco, angel fish, and then finally a bamboo shrimp (though they wouldn't stay alive in my tank for anything until recently lol) the angel is supposed to be a fresh water dwarf, so it can live in a 10 no problem. anyway

O no I don't do that but I know people who breed fish and feed them really good food to feed to their fish, I just meant I"m sure my fish wouldn't mind having baby guppies again for a treat, I know it's mean but I can't save all the fry when my females have babies.

Well some people do that, it's just nature. Some fish only eat other fish so some people breed their own fish to feed them so they can feed them nutrient rich food so they are good for their fish :-\

ya my angels only eat flake, though that's what they ate for 10 years before I got them so guess you can't blame them, o and baby guppies, they love those. Had a female once release them when I was away and when I got home my male angel was stuck in a cave after trying to get one, took me a half hour to get him out. Learned my lesson don't have ornaments that fish can get stuck in.
