I just got a Anemone Shrimp (Periclimenes venustus) and I don't know what it eats. I have a pretty good idea on what it's tank conditions should be, but not what then eat.

Nevermind, the shrimp managed to crawl into the filter. :(

R.I.P.

In case you decide to try again, it's a good idea to keep intakes and other access to filter equip well protected if keeping these little guys. They can get into the tightest of places before you know it.

As for food, the anemone shrimps will feed with your anemone on whatever you are feeding it. It will catch pieces of food as the anemone is catching them, and they dine together.

Ok, thanx. I switched filters, so the intake isn't a problem anymore.
