Hi Everyone and thank you for all the suggestions and info.
I went on youtube and found the video Shrimp Life made (thank you so much for letting me know!!! ) which I believe is the most helpful video along with 2 more when it comes to shrimp.
I am attaching them here in case in case anyone else needs similar info in the future. I got to go find myself some snow flakes now.. I think I read somewhere in the forum that we can make them ourselves (?).. I can not remember where though..
As for the leaves, basically all leaves will do assuming that they have not been treated with pesticides, correct? Leaves from flowers or just trees?
