What do African Armoured Fan Shrimp eat?

What do Cameroon Fan Shrimp eat?

African Fan shrimp are easy to keep. Fine substrate, moderate to fast water flow and plenty of hiding places will ensure a habitat in which your shrimp thrives.

African Fan Shrimp filter micro-organisms from the water, along with tiny particles of fish food. Supplement with small live/frozen foods such as cyclops and brine shrimp and ground-up flake, and plankton. Cameroon Fan shrimp do not commonly eat algae wafers or shrimp pellets.

If fan shrimp begin sifting the sand or substrate, this can be a sign of not getting enough to eat from filter-feeding.
