    Would it be ok to feed them red bell peppers or green bell peppers?
    Its just thats all we have at the moment, and I would love to try feeding them something new.

    BTW I finally found the baby shrimplett I got for free, and holly has he grown! I couldnt believe he grew so much already.

    I hope these ones breed! Im pretty sure even though their juveniles that I have males and females, I just dont see any saddles yet.

    Peppers are a bit tough, they really prefer dead leaves. Back when I had a 10 gallon full of them I would bring in dead water lily leaves from the backyard pond. They would swarm all over the leaves, and would have a couple 4-5" diameter leaves completely consumed within 24 hours with some help from the snails.)

    I've used veggies, but never tried peppers. Don't see why it wouldn't work. Just cut them up and try a piece of it, you'll probably have to weigh it down. Let us know if shrimp like spicy food.

    Oh and yes leaves work.

    The thing to watch about using leaves from ponds or other wet locations is the risk of unwanted hitchikers like hydra. Dry leaves are fine, but the shrimp won't eat them until they begin to break down after soaking for some time.

    As long as the tanks the plants are in are healthy, I don't see why those leaves wouldn't be quite the good idea.
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    Those would be fine; the more dead they are the better the shrimp like them. Another (disgusting) thing I found that my cherry shrimp liked to eat was the moldy food that accumulated on the inside of the plastic lid. Apparently some either stuck from the moisture when I was feeding, or the breaking air bubbles deposited it. Shrimp actually eat bacteria, so anything that's decaying is a smorgasboard for them.
