It sounds like your doing things right. I have a Bamboo shrimp too, and have had it for many, many months. I have a place for him to sit, in front of the output hose to filter feed but he never does. Drove me crazy for a long time, as I do see him feed off the bottom, which is supposedly bad. However, he looks good, (nice color, good weight), and is still around, so I've let it be. If yours did filter fed at one point, he may go back. Perhaps he is not be hungry?? They do say that they are best placed in a tank that is at least one year old. How old is your tank? If you do see him filter feeding again, do place a small pinch of the powder into the current. For the longest time, I was using a syringe to feed mine when I saw him fanning on a leaf. Don't see him doing that much even. He may come out at night and I don't see it. Perhaps yours is doing that? Considering these poor guys are wild caught, they may just be very shy and cautious. I'm thinking about getting another, and hoping another will show him where he's suppose to sit.
