Do shrimp need to be fed?

More specifically, I just bought a CBS last weekend and don't want him to starve to death. I have a 75g with 40# lr.com rock and ~70 base rock. The tank has been up for a couple months now. I have 2 turbo snails and assorted hermits that keep the rocks picked pretty clean.

They are scavengers and should be OK if you have a lot of life in the tank. Dropping a little meaty food into the tank would not be a bad idea though.
