Hi all

I added 8 new red cherry shrimp last Sunday to help clean up algae in my tank.

I have some green algae on the substrate and some rocks, as well as some on the glass. There is also some white fuzz on my driftwood, as well as some brown algae on it.

Can the shrimp survive on the algae alone or do I need to feed them as well? I did buy some Fluval shrimp pellets.

At this point I can only find 5 shrimp, so I may have lost a few. I do see some clear shrimp skins though.
