I got a green bta yesterday. Should I spot feed it once or twice a week? I usually just dump the frozen mysus in the tank and it gets,a little bit to eat each day from what falls into it. I got some fresh shrimp from the store that is uncooked and frozen. That I might cut up and feed it .

Sounds to me like if you are feeding broadcast like that, it will get enough. I wouldn't spot feed in this case

When I feed my tank a homemade frozen blend, I'll save a piece for the end. The warm water thaws it to a point to where I can break it into smaller 1/4" pieces and feed them to my 2 BTAs. I had great success feeding like this every day and have noticed their unhappiness when I miss feeding for a few days.

Agreed, mine stop bubbling and get super stringy after about a week of no feeding. Went on vacation for a week so the nem didn’t get fed and this is what happened
