I’d use a net, just a quick tip for you if you are going to try pellets I’d buy a glass shrimp feeding bowl. That way if they don’t eat the food you can remove the uneaten food easily by lifting out the food bowl and this stops the food disappearing into your substrate.

Yeah you can use plastic tweezers if you wish or use your hands if you know your hands and arms etc are clean and free of perfumes and etc.

Have you thought about just using powdered spirulina?

If you take a look at my YouTube videos there is a video showing how I feed mine. On my phone at the moment so can’t search for the link.

I’d only buy green powdered algae mainly spirulina, you can buy it online everywhere.

I would have to agree with Odin. I personally don't feed any pellet food. I feel there's proteins in there the shrimp don't require and using pellet food will only contribute to feeding and growing unwanted algae. Here's a link to a brand that was recommended. This is the one i've been using for over a year now.

For the British forum users i advise to use this Spirulina as its 100% pure for shrimp: https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/shrimplab/ ... 84460.html and its easier for us to buy.. no importing. :grin3:
