Hi!

So I have a shrimp tank with reds, blues and yellows but have decided I am going to split them by color and start working on upgrading their colors instead of just letting them mix breed. I have a ton of wild type shrimp from all the mixed breeding that I am wanting to cull.

I have a Figure 8 Puffer on his own in my 36 Gal and though I have a snail colony for him I am thinking of feeding him the wild type shrimp but want to make sure it is totally safe for him.

Is it safe to feed him the shrimp? They are all healthy, just need to cull the heard lol.

Thanks

Absolutely, it's just another live protien for them to hunt. It will help with any potential boredom too
