I used to feed but stop when I had a phosphate issue. I have noticed the best growth and color by dosing: alk, mag, and calcium. Now that I have locked that in, everything seems to be responding well. I do weekly water changes, but for some reason it wasn't enough to keep my minerals up.

Little piece of shrimp will be fine. Watch and the plate mouth will slowly pull it in.

You could. Shrimp pellet or anything a little smaller than its mouth.
