Hi:

Has anyone tried feeding their CRS cooked corn?

It looks like nutrious shrimp food. As long as it does not kill the shrimps, I want to try.

Thanks

Wayne.:D

What would make me worry about it a bit is the fact that our systems can't properly digest it.
This is why, I worry that the corn may kill them because they cannot digest it or it is poisonous for them.

My tiger shrimps seem like they want to try it.

I also put some in my Crystal red shrimps tank. The crystal red shrimps have not come to eat it yet.

Like said above why take the chance when there are a tonne of other veggies to feed them that we all know are ok for them. It's a risk I personally wouldn't take.

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

Yup. They don't seem to like it very much. Removed.

I wish I had a digital camera to take some pictures of my 10g crystal red shrimp tank.

Previously, I raised shrimps before and they died in couple of weeks. I have these for almost a month now and they are still very healthy.

So I really should not try stupid things.

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.
