    Default Bamboo Shrimp Just Molted...

    How often do they molt and how long are they vulnerable after they molt? Also, I've read that if they search the gravel it means they're not getting enough to eat. Is there a supplemental food I should be giving it just in case it's not getting enough just filtering out what's in the water?

    Thanks so much!

    They'd take about 24 hours to harden. A small flowerpot or two half burried or a piece of pipe are welcome shelters.

    Gravel picking is indeed a sign of a starving shrimp. Some people report good results with liquifry, others ground up dried bloodworms really fine. There's even people that say their shrimp love tank starter bacteria. This guy has a decent writeup:

    yeah filter fish/shrimp who are scavangeing instead of trying to filter the water column usually means theres not enough food for them. i've had sucess with liquidfry as stated above.
