    Hi. I just added more amano shrimp so now have 10 in a 16 gallon tank with 6 platies. It is moderately planted. Questions is do I need to supplement the algae and plant material they eat with food? I tried dropping some pellets (New Life Spectrum 0.5 mm) but the platies are pigs and get most of them (even though the platies were just fed). If I should supplement, how do I keep the platies from stealing it?

    Feed the platies in a diffrent area than where you feed the shrimp and feed them at the same time.
