Hi all, got 7 red cherry shrimp for the minnow tank. They're grazing very happily on all the algae and bits on moss balls and wood.
Just wondering if I need to supplement them with calcium and if so, how best to do this?

Its best to supplement their diet...

don't know brands etc.... but you can get food for inverts which would provide calcium etc... Little sinking tablets. i used to have tiny little green sinking tables...

One of the shrimp has shedded! Did have a mini panic that it had died but definitely an exoskeleton, not dead shrimp.
Found some food for them, they (and the minnows) love it
