Marine Feeder Grass Shrimp For Your Aquarium
Different Names, Same Nutrition
Grass Shrimp, Glass Shrimp, Feeder Shrimp, Ghost Shrimp.
Cultured at normal Seawater Salinity (1.022- 1.025), these shrimp acclimate like regular fish and corals, thriving in tropical marine tanks.
Live Nutritional Source
Marine Saltwater live feeder Shrimp are invaluable, providing live protein, vitamins, and enzymes for most other animals in our Saltwater tanks. They offer nutrition unmatched by frozen or non-live food.
Vacation Feeders and Cleaners
Planning to be away? Add these shrimp and some live Mysis shrimp to your tank. They not only feed your tank inhabitants daily but also clean algae off surfaces, consuming food scraps and fish waste.
Size and Storage
Ranging from 7mm – 20mm, store extra shrimp in your refugium sump area, which can act as a holding tank for later feedings while they continue cleaning and consuming nuisance algae.
High Nutritional Value & Breeding
Available for Purchase
We can now offer these shrimp in large quantities for home aquariums and fish breeding programs, serving various uses for public consumers.
Ideal for Various Marine Life
They are an excellent feed for Seahorses, frogfish, angler fish, groupers, jawfish, cephalopods (like Octopus and Cuttlefish), Eels, and more—essentially, any meat-eating fish.
Solution for Feeding Issues
Wild-caught fish may lose their appetites due to stress and rough handling. If a specimen isn’t eating, introduce these shrimp to stimulate its feeding instinct. Over time, you can acclimate it back to frozen, liquid, or dry foods.
