I didn't - just tossed 'em in... I looked at them when I bought them to visually inspect for anything, but in this case I am leaving it to chance...

Never do ,,Even if the food/fish had ick it will be digested in the angler..So unless the fish stays alive for more than a day or 2 theres almost no risk ..
Anglers are very resistant too it also

Not sure if you're still considering mollies. I was reading the biggest issue with feeding fresh water fish to saltwater fish was the freshwater in their systems. So give them a while to get some saltwater in their bellies. But I wouldn't want to risk any harm to this guy if I wasn't 100% certain, I'm sure you've taken all this into consideration. 😃

In case anyone forgot, the shrimp went in on 4/6/12, so this is day (9) of the cycle.
