camel shrimp

My tank is currently fishless due to ick(they are all in qt). I got a camel shrimp so that I could have some life in my tank. My question is what do they eat? There are no fish in the tank so there wont be any left overs so what should I do to feed the shrimp?-thanks

The same thing you fed the fish would be fine. It will also help maintain the bacterial levels while the fish are in the QT and the tank is fallow. Feed less than normal a few times a week.

Cheers
Steve

Buddy of mine just bought one of these. He just has some live rock, blue leg hermits, a damsel, and a couple turbo snails. Does he have anything to worry about?

I remember I bought a few camel shrimp a few years back. I had no idea what I was doing. Anyways I had some normal hermit crabs that decided to eat the camel shrimp.

Camel shrimp shouldn't be a concern to other mobile inverts. Mainly corals and the like...

Cheers

Not true... they're much too small and skiddish. Arrow crabs and CBS would be more a concern for that. Even then it's extremely rare and usually an unhealthy fish to begin with.

Cheers
