They'll eat anything your betta does. If your betta is hogging the food, you can always try sinking food instead. I found that my shrimp learned when feeding time was, though, so they would come up and steal my betta's food!
My shrimp are swimming upside down on the top of the tank eating now lol! (I have a shrimp only tank)
As for shrimp needing salt I don't know Somewhere on TFK I read it was bad... I think... take it with a gain of salt LOL, IM gonna look for that thread again...
One thing with shrimp DO not use Wardley bullsye or Wardley water treatment pro.... I found out that I was killing them with that. (All my shrimp would die within 72 hours) Other threads and google searches revaled that PH adjusting chemicals kill shrimp (or atleast some do) :(
I setup the tank exactly the same this time, And they are fine :) (Only 4 days old though) So we will see.
