Honestly when diagnosing how often and how much to feed your shrimp, we need to know a few variables. How many shrimp do you have and how large is your aquarium?


I usually feed my larger colonies 50+ shrimp Monday, Wednesday, Friday 3/4 of a stick/pad/etc. My smaller colonies of 15-30 shrimp I usually feed Monday, Wednesday, Friday 1/4 of a stick/pad/etc.


All of my aquariums are 17.1g and I occasionally feed them Mulberry, Amaranth, and/or Snowflake on the weekends (once a month).
