haha..imagine the corn kernel "coat" dun get eaten by the shrimps...imagine all that on ur gravel/tank base...cuz since its kinda hard for humans to digest the "seed coat"...might be the same for other animals...so stick with the suggested vegetables
My tiger shrimps seem to eat the corn. I have 5 tiger shrimps in a 2 + 1/2 g tank. 2-3 of the females constantly carry eggs. But for some reason they keep on dropping them all eventually. I have never seen any shrimplets.
