| || | Thanks for the feedback on the Bamboo shrimp. I'm not as worried anymore about mine. He does fan and filter feed but not in direct way of the filter water, but rather from underneath a rock structure, that is on the path of the water flow. He has shed and is a very nice bright color, not the brown color when I bought him. He seems fine, I just wish he'd come out more, but perhaps someday.

As for Gwen up there, bamboos are usually filter fed, most efficient way. but if there is nothing to filter feed upon they will not waste energy filtering water but will start to search for food on the ground, this is when you know that your feedings for filter feeders are insufficient and you should find a good food source. do not let bamboo shrimps search for long as they will starve.
