Firstly: I don't have these shrimp and have never experience ich in my tanks.
I was just wondering (since I found these guys interesting in the lfs
) since these are filter feeding shrimp whom feed on microorganisms...and ich have life cycles where they are not attached to fish do you think these shrimp will have an impact on keeping ich from spreading as fast or controlling outbreaks? Of course if you have a small tank or an unplanted tank I could see these guys starving after a few months (when there are few microorganisms left to feed on)...but they seem like a possible way to keep your fish safer
I wonder if they would get nice and fat in a tank with a constant algae "bloom" problem?
