Feeding peppermint shrimp?

I know, usually, they're going to eat the leftovers from whatever else you're feeding...but there's nothing else to feed right now.

They've annihilated the visible aiptasia in my tank. I have no idea what I cannot see.

but if they've gotten rid of the stuff that I can't see, I guess they need something else...and I'd prefer they didn't start in on the snails...

any suggestions?

You can put a little mysis in there, but very little. They are scavengers and will eat; even if you can't see what they are eating.

I can tell they're still scavenging...I just want to make sure there's something to scavange. They're probably fine, but I'd like to hedge my bets.

I've got another 5 weeks, minimum, before I introduce any fish.

You could loan one to me to eat the couple of aptasia I have, then I could give him back!

We don't mind loaning you ours for a couple days. We work pretty close to where you are and if you can pick him up from our office in the morning and bring him back before we close (just to avoid him being in a bag for a long period of time), you are more than welcome.

I think our strategies are slightly inverted. :P

BTW, they love mysis. cool.gif

Yeah, our shrimp are always stealing it from our fungia and anything else that has a weak hold on it.
