Grass Shrimp, Glass Shrimp, Feeder Shrimp, Ghost Shrimp.
Cultured at normal Seawater Salinity. 1.022- 1.025. Acclimation is easy. Just acclimate like regular fish and corals. These shrimp live and thrive in our tropical marine tanks.
These are Marine Saltwater live feeder Shrimp are an excellent source of live protein, vitamins, and enzymes for most other animals in our Saltwater tanks.
No amount of frozen or non live food can replace the nutritional value of live shrimp fed to our aquarium animals.
When you need to be away from your tank, say for holiday or work related travel, add some of these shrimp and some live Mysis shrimp to your tank before you leave. You may not be able to have someone feeding your tank while away. These will not only feed your inhabitants on a daily basis but also work as a cleaner crew eating the algae off the glass and rocks and food scraps and fish waste.
Size 7mm – 20mm, store the extra shrimp in your refugium sump area for use as a holding tank for later feedings. Saltwater feeder glass shrimp also perform the task of a clean up cleaner crew eating unwanted nuisance algae.
High nutritional value. Live prey item.
These shrimp will readily spawn in the reef tank. They will produce baby free swimming larvae stages which will flow around in the current like Zooplankton and provide food for your fish and corals in the marine reef tank.
We are excited to finally have these shrimp available in large enough quantities to so we are also offering them to the public for many uses in their home aquariums and for fish breeding programs.
Excellent feed for Seahorses, frog fish, angler fish, groupers, jaw fish, Cephalopod’s, Octopus, Cuttlefish, Eels and more. Any fish that eats meat can’t resist a live shrimp meal.
Many times, fish that are collected in the wild go through a lot of rough handling, and are kept housed for extended periods of time before we get them at the local aquarium store. So due to stress and many days of disorientation, they can lose their appetites. This usually leads to their early demise.
If you have a feeding problem with a wild caught fish specimen try feeding some of these shrimp to try to kick start its instinct for feeding again. Then, with time, you can slowly teach/ acclimate it to eat frozen, liquid, or dry foods.
