I keep reading about seed shrimp. As I have no experience with them, what are they used for, are they needed and where do you buy them? an they be easily bred once you get them? I assume they're used for food for other creatures?

I only am aware of seed shrimp being something that can crop up naturally in a tank and is nothing to worry about (i.e. they are harmless, not a pest or parasite).

Seed shrimp might possibly be desirable as a live food, but there are other live foods that would be easier to keep and feed, like brine shrimp, daphnia, or grindal worms. Depending on what fish you want to keep, you might not really "need" live food at all, but if you're wanting to breed or keep difficult species, it's worth looking into.
