Hey guys and girls!

I was wondering:

I have 6 sexy shrimp in a aquamedic armatus XS pico tank with a couple of mushrooms, sand and rocks.

I am looking for pellets or other kind of food to feed the sexy shrimp but have not yet been succesfull.

My problems:

- If i feed, some pellets or mysis could fall between the rocks
- Cannot find big pellets like shrimp king complete for marine use.
- Preferably i can remove leftover food easily

I do 2 water change weekly of around 25%

Thanks!

Have you tried PE Calanus? Tiny and you can dispense with a dropper.
Never heard of it, i live in the EU and it seems like some things are quite limited here regarding marine supplies.

Do you need to spot feed them or do they smell the food? Preferably I would feed 1 big pellet and then remove it after they are done with it.

Whenever I feed anything I turn the pumps off and for anything that needs to be hand fed, yes - I spot feed in the general vicinity.

I usually turn my return pump and MP10 Wavemaker off in my Nano and then feed them. I feed them freeze-dried mysis shrimp and then, once a week, a frozen cube of many different things. I leave the pumps off for about 30 minutes. They always seem to find and eat the food.
