I have 4 amano shrimp (about the same size as bamboos) and they grab pellets & other stuff from my cories - my family calls them the "bullies" - everyone gets to eat something but that's the way they are - don't know if bamboo shrimp are more docile or not.

thanks, yea that is what i was wondering, see the ropefish will be hard to feed unless food is right in front of them, so i was worring that the bamboos would take it from them

bamboo shrimp are filter feeders. They sit with their front legs in the current and filter fine particles to eat. They won't go after pellets or whatever unless they're starving.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

In a mature tank there may be enough suitable organisms that no extra feeding is required.
If not, While they may eat some crushed pellets or wafers . . . Having a daphnia culture, rotifers or powdered algae would be closer to optimal.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
