    What is the rule of thumb, or a calculator to determine how much to feed and of what? Ie: food for top middle and vottom eaters?

    I plan on having shrimp so I'm curious if i have to feed them or if they find it themselfs as if no food geys down to them they starve.

    Thoughts

    It would depend on what/how many fish you have, and if you have plants etc

    I use shrimp pellets for my amano shrimp. I have a few different types of fish so I make sure some hits the bottom as flake rarely does. I also put omega one veggie rounds in. Its funny watching them carry them off to thier hidey holes in the driftwood. I've seen mine picking through java moss for tidbits too. I only have 6 in my 55g, I've had them about a year or so. I got them to help with a small outbreak of the dreaded blackbeard algae. 20180210_224502.jpg
