    as you already know herlequin shrimp are very difficult to feed if you dont have a welle established supply of star fish, but there are a few things you can try to help them along.


    Have you tried feeding them defrosted hake? They will sometimes take it.

    you can also go to the coast and try collect cushion stars (google it for images) and they will often take to living and multiplying in the tank which the shrimps can then feed on.

    how long have you had the shrimps and when last did they feed?
