this product :P or you can ebay the name for something similar :3 will last a very longtime at 1pinch / water change. All brands should be very similar, since this stuff is like sugar or salt... there are pretty much no variations

I tried putting 10 ghost shrimp in my sorority a few days ago, and they all were dead within a half hour. The ones I got were almost as big as my girls (very large gravid female ghosties), and still were brutally murdered...is it safe to assume the girls would kill amanos too? I originally wanted amanos but thought I'd try the cheaper ghosties first.

I really love my Amano shrimp. And I have to say I've never been so amazed while watching an animal poop...

I should get some pictures of feeding time... there is just this hazy cloud of reddish/brown. Shrimp have good noses.
