Hi so I’ve recently set up a new tank and it’s currently in the cycling phase but once that’s finished I’ll be looking to get some shrimp. (Blue velvet shrimp, if any knows any good online sellers in the UK please let me know).
Just wandering, what do shrimp eat. All my research has said they scavenge leftover food and eat biofilm. Is this true. Btw, if u know any other good tips please tell me.

thanks

The few shrimps in my main tank which I couldn't catch to move to my other tank eat whatever I feed the fish, plus any algae they find. The shrimps in my small shrimp tank are fed Hikari Shrimp Cuisine (there are other shrimp foods, take a look at the choice on offer at ProShrimp). Since this tank gets sunlight at this time of year and there's no algae, I assume they are eating any algae that grows before I see it.
