    All my fish is in quarantine for a month, but my DT still has a cleaner shrimp, and 2 hermits. Must I throw some food in for them, or what will they live on? I also have a sea hare, but he grazes on algae, so he should be fine.

    I personally would still feed the tank a bit. I think with no fish in you will need to add some kind of "waste" otherwise when you reintroduce the fish you might have a little cycle again.

    they will be fine, you dont have to feed them...they will find food in the form of small critters, detritus, etc in the tank for the time being.
