Marine Grass Shrimp are commonly known as Glass Shrimp, Feeder Shrimp and Ghost Shrimp.
We culture these creatures in a normal aquarium with a seawater salinity of 1.022- 1.025 so they will not bring pathogens or viruses into your aquarium.
The Acclimation process is the same as regular fish and corals. These shrimp live and thrive in your tropical marine tanks.
Excellent food source
They are an excellent source of live protein, vitamins, and enzymes for most other animals in our marine tanks. No amount of frozen or non-live food can replace the nutritional value of live shrimp fed to our aquarium animals.
Benefits of Marine Grass Shrimp:
- When you need to be away from your tank, say for a holiday or work-related travel, add some of these Marine Grass Shrimp 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 cleanup 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.
What fish enjoy Marine Grass Shrimp?
Marine Grass shrimp are an excellent food source for marine aquarium fish like Tangs, Lionfish, Frogfish and Anglerfish. Groupers, Jawfish, Cephalopod, Octopus, Cuttlefish, Eels and any fish that eats meat can’t resist a live shrimp meal.
We are excited to finally have these shrimp available in large enough quantities, so we are offering them to the hobbyist for use in their home aquariums and for fish breeding programs.
Finally, if you have a feeding problem with a recently purchased fish specimen try feeding some of these shrimp to try to kick start their instinct for feeding again. Then, with time, you can slowly teach/ acclimate it to eat frozen or even dry foods.
