Bambooo Shrimp

I read awhile back (on this forum) that there is some store bought food that works well for Bamboo Shrimp but using the search function, I'm comming up empty.

Anybody use a commercial product to add food the the tank for their Bamboo Shrimp?

The LFS won't have it.

Shrimp & Fish food - Alpha Pro Breeders

that is the only guy I know with stock in the USA at the moment (maybe) or contact Dan Ly dlydho@yahoo.com (no website)

He is in California he may still have stock left.

I am in Canada so I go through someone else.

I soak up tetra flakes in a little bit of tank water and pour it infront of the shrimp, they start fanning immediately. Or if I'm lazy, a shrimp pellet in front of where he's sitting. It'll break up and they'll begin eating it in a minute or two.

GLA is pretty good. I forgot who the owner is, but that biomax product is fairly new to the market, coming out of Singapore. Can't say either way how good it is.
