Seed shrimps eating moss?

Seed shrimps eating moss?

Postby pratiksawai47 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 10:39 am

I had some moss on a piece of wood in my shrimp tank and the ss would always munch on it and destroy it. Anyone experiencing the same?
Checked many sites online but didn't got my answer. Anyone willing to share their experience with seed shrimp are most welcome:)

Seed shrimps dont eat moss unless the moss is decomposed. So keeping the moss healthy would solve the problem IMO. Share a pic if you can :)
