Ghost Shrimp Care Question

    Hey guys! Just a few days ago, I bought some ghost shrimp because I had heard interesting things about them. Soon enough though, I realized I knew little about them! My most pressing questions right now are: do I have to feed them separately? And how? So far I’ve been handfeeding them with fish flakes.

    Fis( flakes will be good.

    Ghost shrimp will just eat basically whatever you give them.

    A lot of people supplement their diet with algae wafer snad veggies.

    Blanched veggies are great, but they'll really eat anything.

    They love java moss, and will eat the biofilm that grows on it. Java Miss needs little light as well, so I'd recommend it!

    Great! But one more question - how should I feed them flakes. Do I just net it down onto the sand?

    What fish are they with?

    I would just hold the flakes underwater near the filter outflow and the flakes will be blasted to the bottom.

    Don’t feed too much though.

    They’re currently with 4 guppies in a 20 gallon. Thanks for the suggestion - I will absolutely try it!
