Do you mean food for human shrimp or shrimp that humans eat? I would just try the cucumber or some broccoli at night and then early in the morning while they are still eating it you can scoop them out. I dead shrimp will foul the water, and can possibly affect your betta and shrimp.

and stop overfeeding. If you have an overpopulation of ramshorns, you 100% are overfeeding.

If your fish are fed the right amount, then nothing hits the gravel. The ramshorn snails don't have food. They don't breed hardly at all.
