diy shrimp food

Recommended Posts

Hi there im trying to do mine food, just because i keep ~20 shrimps tanks...

I made the first one ...

I want it all in one.  :)

Ingredients i use...

 

Senfsamen seeds

Soybean flour

Cinnamon Bark

spirulina

Chlorella

soy protein

protein peas

fennel seeds

moringa

zeolite

nettle leaves

mulberry leaves

walnuts leaves

oaks leaves

carrots

spinach

cabbage

Pollen mix

montmorillonite

Artemia dry

gammarus dry

 

I bought kelp but shrimp dont like it maybe i think too much salt...

I made the food, i  dose some , shrimps go there and try to eat it , maybe i dose lot of agar.

Snails love it ..

 

Any other ingredients  i can use?

 

Do anyone have a dosage advice on those?

 

 

Also a problem , its dificult to dry it ...

Hi,

I would split your ingredients not add more

Focus on different batches with specific goals in mind .

For example

Adding soya and peas is redundant. Both high in protein

Make one batch with protein as main aim
Another batch with calcium in mind etc.

My recipes: all powder certified organic used.

Protein batch twice a week feed

1. Pea powder 3 scoops
2. Spinach 1 scoop
3. Bee pollen 1/2 scoop
4. Moringa 1/2 scoop
5. Agar agar a pinch

Daily feed or when I want to ( all leaves dried and made into powder by me then made in pellet form

1. Mulberry leaves
2. Nettle leaves
3. Dandelion leaves
4. Amaranth leaves
5. Bee pollen
Agar agar

Equal parts on all 5 items .

Molting feed: 2 x week

1. Soya hulls 2 scoops
2. montmorillonite 1/3 scoop
3. Kelp 1 scoop
4. Spinach 1/2 scoop
5. Mulberry 1/2 scoop
Agar agar

Hi there thanks for the relply.

Yes you are right  , i ll try to do something like that.

 

kelp helps for molting?

When i use kelp shrimp go away from food, maybe high in salt?

Apologies I indicated kelp but meant kale never used kelp before .

Mulberry
Spinach
Stinging nettle
To name a few is enough molting.
