Unhappy Does anyone know if I can feed my anemones wild caught shrimp? caught shrimp

hello everyone!

I've had my anemones now for over a year (super stoked about that btw) and I usually just feed them frozen brine shrimp from the pet store in the cubes with a dropper thing. I was wondering if I can feed my anemones store-bought wild-caught shrimp with salt added or if I should stick to my current regime. I really want to see the anemones grow more and that's why I'm asking this. Thanks so much!

Welcome HyperAquatics! Yes, you can feed your nems shrimp. The more you feed, the bigger they get. You'll have to figure out how often to feed the larger shrimp, but that shouldn't be too hard. Remove any food they don't eat, so you don't pollute the tank.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
