Re:cleaner shrimp diet


Thank you Pete!

I think I’ll make a trial run with the volcano shrimp and see how we do with keeping them. Already set up a 10 gallon tank and are getting cycling fish this week. So I guess two weeks or so, until the tank is somewhat suitable.
If the shrimp tolerate a wide range of salinity then I can just have them in store bought reef water I guess. Cool!

Do you think I should add another fire shrimp? I have one right now. He seems actually still afraid of the horsies. They swim right up to him and seem to taunt him with their tails and he goes hiding. Takes some time I guess.
Also found him "hoarding" a big pile of food. Not good. Though didn’t impact Ammo nor nitrates, luckily.

Snoopy did the "scratching" once more a few days ago. But that was it. He seems to be looking for the the shrimp. Maybe when I’m not watching, but while I’m there nothing groomingly is happening. His body seems clean; I checked him close up again when he was on my hand.
I think he wants Clara more these days. He spends now more time holding tails with her and got even more relaxed with me too. That little guy loves his swimming at least twice a day.
