Shrimps are omnivores and as such they also need animal proteins, which they usually find in mostly invisible microorganisms and microbes in the substrate. In order to grant a sufficient supplies of such microbes, Takayuki Shirakura developed the rearing feed » Chi Ebi, which serves as a nutrition basis not only for baby shrimps but also for microorganisms and thus support a healthy development of the population. These little helpers furthermore dispose of feed residues and excrements of the shrimps which lie deeper down the substrate and thus clean the substrate. If feed residues and excrements are not removed, shrimps may die from the evolving poisonous substances. Baby shrimps are particularly at risk. This is the reason why Ebi Dama feed by Shirakura has a very firm consistency. It will not fall apart during feeding and sink down to the floor unused.
In relatively newly set-up aquariums in which the substrate is not yet sufficiently active, it is recommended to add high-quality feed, for example artemia, once a week. However, it is also recommended to use » Chi Ebi - rearing feed from the very beginning since it significantly accelerates the genesis of the important microorganisms and microbes.
Feed Ebi Dama twice a day in small amounts, but only as much as the shrimps can eat within one or two hours. If all shrimps are full, feed leftovers should as a principle be removed from the aquarium.

Ebi Dama is, by far, the favorite food in my tank. As soon as it is dropped in, both my Neon Yellows and my Royal Blues go straight for it! Unfortunately, my dog ate the entire bag I purchased from Alpha Pro Breeders the first day I received it, but my friend was able to gift me a small sample bag to last me a while. I've been using this for about three months now and can confirm that this is definitely a great food for shrimp!

My shrimp are simply going crazy over this food. I didn't know I had as many shrimp as I did until I threw some food in there and they all just started running for it.
