Help! Feeding Recommendation

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. This is my first post on our forum. I'm having 2 tanks: 20 gallons with 4 Taiwan bee and 7 gallon cube with 6 adult crs and 20-40 babies. How should I feed them? I have Glasgarten shrimp baby, mosura graze, and shirakura ebi dama. Right now, I'm feeding them mosura graze on Sunday, ebi dama on Thursday, and shrimp baby on Mon Weds Fri.

Nah. I don't use a feeding dish. For food like ebi dama, I only let it sit inside tank where they usually gather for 3-4 hours, then I take it out. For powder foods, I only feed a pinch to 4 corners. Is my way correct? Do you think a 7 gal cube has enough biofilm to feed to all CRS?

All cycled for 4-6 months and run with 2 sponge filters for each tank. The big one planted with a big bunch of narrow leaf ferns. The small one planted with buces on cholla wood. They still get berried normally. I just don't want to overfeed because someone said shrimps could face difficulty to molt if they grew too fast.

Honestly your 20 gallon tank you should maybe feed once a week, and if you do 1 fifth or a fourth of a pellet/stick/wafer/etc. Your 7 gallons tank maybe twice a week until the babies mature to juvies and sub-adults. 

I do have a few suggestions, cut back on the Mosura Graze, feed it maybe once a month. What type of filtration do you have? I ask because this certainly varies how you should feed your powdered foods.I would use Ebi Dama as your primary staple, and others as supplements.

 

Hope this helps!

There is more danger overfeeding than "starving" as shrimp also eat biofilm, algae, micro-organisms, etc.

Your Glas-Garten Shrimp baby should only be used maybe once a week. Be sure to use a syringe to get it down to the substrate level to allow your shrimplets a chance to grab on to the food.
