Food Type
 
ummm.....i have a Coral Bandid Shrimp and was wondering what other kinds of food can i feed him.....i mainly use these shrimp pellets that sink and he likes to chase it in the current and the finally grab it ...:) anything else in particular that possibly sinks and that he will eat....

you know, I dont know much about the coral banded shrimp and what they should eat for an ideal nutritional meal. But I know hicari (not sure how to spell it) the make something called sinking pellets/waffers This is for bottom feeders like loaches.. I think it has proteen and plant mixture

Dont brine shrimp come in like large squares....and when i break my shrimp up it usually floats before it sinks.....and my shrimp doesn't really have the power to swim up and get it like normal shrimp because of its large arms it has at the side of him.
