feeding
 
oki only have a little time 2 write this all up. im wondering what feeding methods you ppl use. i have a feeding ring that i hate and i dont want to use it anymore. i have heard of cone feeders, and i want to go to the lfs to see if they have some. what are your methods?

Ditto Willow.

I drop in the algae wafers for the bottom feeders, and then distract the other fish with either bloodworm or flakes. It means that they all get some :)

ok im sorry. i meant to ask if you ppl have feeding cones or anything.
i think if my lfs has some feeding cones ill get some but if they dont ill just deal with my ring feeders. anyway, what do you people think i should feed my amano shrimps?

my shrimp loves catfish pellets,
i got some Really small pellets from a chap on ebay
my catfish can't get enough of them,and as they are
so small the shrimp rush out grab one and run off. :)

I just drop it in and try to spread it out through out the tank so if the first wave attack is hitting the first handful the less out going fish can take on the second or third hand full on the other side of the tank.
