Re:cleaner shrimp diet


thank you for your info!!!!

Yep, that would explain while they don’t want to feed from the coral and why it takes me sometimes a loooong while to explain to them that at some point they need to let go of my hand.

However, a big issue with the feeding is when we need to go away for a few days. I enjoy the hand feeding, but sooner or later I may have to do at least short trips out of town. And of course, somehow I didn’t think about that before. Maybe I can add a mini tank with shrimp or something.

Strange thing happened. Snoopy seemed rubbing against my hand, and a few times it looked like he was very lightly hitting his head against my hand, then he tried to pull Clara off my hand without any success; Clara has a ninja grip, so then he found a different finger on which to hitch and seemed happy there.

Just in case I checked him thoroughly. His body is clean; nothing on there that could make him wanna rub off anything. He doesn’t do that on plants or corals either.
Only did that with me one time. But just in case I’m hoping the shrimp starts grooming soon.

So, I’m keeping the shrimp on frozen mysis for now. I have freeze dried mysis here. Maybe I’ll try that too. The shrimp is still extremely shy. Seems ours is a neurotic one.
