feeders are fine for sw
fish as long as they given as a sort of treat for them. Feeder shrimp do not have enough nutrients for the fish to eat as their primary food source. From what I was told, sw
feeder shrimp are basically fw
feeders that have adapted to sw
. Don't know how true that is though.
I feed my predatory tank sw
ghost or grass shrimp once a week just for a treat. They tear em up.
An interesting side note: fw
feeder shrimp are much slower in a sw
tank. Try putting sw
feeder shrimp in there and see how fast they are.....lol. pretty cool stuff.
