    Bought 2 new skunk cleaner shrimps.

    I feed my tank 2x daily, but sparingly as its a nano.

    Do I need to target feed these fellahs? or feed a bit more into the tank or what?

    I'm no expert, but I also feed my tank 2x daily. Mostly I use flakes and pellets that sink to the bottom. The fish generally leave the pellets alone, and the shrimp seems happy with it.

    Hahaha.. target feeding a shrimp... :lol:

    Don't worry about feeding them, they will find the food... (or rip it out of your hands)

    Talking about that, my shrimp is quite happy to take treats straight from my hand... pretty aggressive little guys, doesn't like it when I'm trying to clean the glass. Got that "Mighty Mouse" syndrome thing going.
