Figure Eight Puffer food questions

Post by Figure85150 »

What is the best way to feed your Figure Eight shrimp? With the shell on and uncooked? I'm feeding them bladder snails and occasionally blood worms but was not sure how to properly feed them shrimp. Also, what size shrimp do you use and do you cut it up or put the entire shrimp in? What else is good to feed them and what is the best place to buy it?

ALWAYS uncooked, with shell on. Cut up the food to only feed enough for them to eat in 5 minutes.
