    So if a tank has no live plants is there something else ghost shrimp will feed off of? Don't have any yet just curious. I have a deciding sized clump of flame moss but that's about it right now. Waiting for people to trim their plants.

    Will they eat algae?
    Could you toss in some blanched veggies or fish flakes?

    I'm researching RCS, don't know if ghost shrimp are similar.

    They'll eat leftover fish food, veggies and just about everything they can find lol

    Mine love to fill their arms with sinking pellets, and run off to their cave for noms

    Lol I get that. Plants can be frustrating. I can grow aquarium plants (sort of) but on land I kill everything but lilies and hostas!
