I run a tank Darwin would be proud of, I throw food in every so often and my animals get what they can.

Shrimp were designed by nature to be scavengers, they will get whatever leftover food there is, dont worry about your shrimps

I spoil mine, once a week I give them each a sinking pellet. They take it right out of my hand!

Every other day, I hand feed some frozen brine. You should see all those little arms working at once!

My cleaner is the undisputed king of my tank. He gets in tug 'o wars with my fish and crabs for food, and wins more often than not. And I finally saw my coral beauty being cleaned the other day. Very cool.

My cleaner is an aggressive feeder. When feeding my anemones pieces of shrimp or silversides, it will jump on my hand and take a piece for himself!

I've got a big blood shrimp. I hand feed it a small piece of frozen food about twice a week. Otherwise it just scavenges. It will occasionally steal a piece of food from the longnose hawk.
