Ghost shrimp for triggers

Does anyone feed ghost shrimp to their triggers? I put a few in with my niger trigger and he isnt interested in them at all. He also hasnt touched any of the snails or hermits that are in there. He is a big old softy lol.

I saw the guys feeding ghost shrimp to triggers on the TV show Tanked but that's probably not helpful hahah. Good luck tho

It should be ok provided you gut load the shrimp first. Honestly it's better than using live feeder fish.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.

Worst case scenario they survive and help keep the tank clean. I've been debating on trying to put some into mine for my niger.
