Crackhead Johny Posted January 9, 2016 Report Share Posted January 9, 2016 I doubt anyone would do this but many months ago I had some ghost shrimp in a 5 gal fish bowl and was thinking "I should feed them something they can build shells with". Then I hit upon a faux clever idea "Why not just feed them powdered crab shells, there is nothing better to make shell out of better than shell!" So I took my bag of king/snow crab shells out of the freezer, grabbed a hand full and boiled them for an hour or more. Then I let them dry and ran them through my spice grinder until they were fine powder. It looked like I made a non-vegan safe white glitter. So I gave one tiny pinch to the shrimp. They were all dead when I walked past the bowl a little while later. I do not know if it plugged their gills or what, but powdered crab shells seems to be super poisonous to shrimp. So I lost a little over a dollar in shrimp (god bless cheap guinea pigs). Vpier and Wygglz 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
