I have mine on a 3 day cycle, two days grazing algae from moss and driftwood then third day I throw in a few pellets of crab cuisine. I break these small pellets into two so the shrimp are able to take off with them so the assassin snails dont bully their way in. Must be getting enough protien as my females are berried only a day or two RIGHT after giving birth to babies.
