Benefits of Aqua - Cultured Saltwater Feeder shrimp species Palaemonetes Pugio.

 

 

Important please read before purchasing feeder shrimp.

Shrimp can arrive with the water quite turbid, this is no cause for alarm. There can also be shrimp molts in the bag which look like dead shrimp bodies.

We pack 25% more shrimp than the quantity ordered to compensate for the few doa's.

Prepare a container with clean saltwater. 

Pour shrimp through a net to remove them from the turbid water.

Then place all the contents of the net in the clean water. Discard any dead shrimps.

At this point you, can count the live shrimp if you feel that it's not the quantity you ordered.

Please follow this procedure before contacting us for doa claims.

If this takes a little longer than the 2 hours after delivery, don't worry about it just email us if you have concerns at that point.

 

 

For smaller quantities of feeder shrimp go to the live saltwater fish food category where we have smaller quantities in combos with free express shipping.

The unique thing about saltwater grass shrimp is that they don't have a large carbon foot print, they have other attributes besides being prey for larger animals.

 

They are a cleaner shrimp in the sense that they spend their day and more at night cleaning left over detritus and scraping algae from rocks and crevices.
So they have more benefits to your tank than just live fish food.

Best way to feed live food to your Angler fish and Frog Fish is to load the live feeder shrimp with extremely nutritious food before feeding to your captive kept fish.
This is the way that predatory fish like Angler fish and seahorses get the necessary nutrients for lead healthy lives in the wild earths oceans.

 

 

Many times, fish that are collected in the wild go through a lot of rough handling, and are kept housed for extended periods of time before we get them at the local aquarium store. So due to stress and many days of disorientation, they can lose their appetites. This usually leads to their early demise.

If you have a feeding problem with a wild caught fish specimen try feeding some of these saltwater feeder shrimp or saltwater grass shrimp to try to kick start its instinct for feeding again. Then, with time, you can slowly teach/acclimate it to eat frozen, liquid, or dry foods.

Question:  I just purchased a new fish, a puffer fish and it won't eat anything I offer it. I'm trying your live Saltwater feeder shrimp as a last resort to try to get it to eat.

What do you think I should try if the live feeders don't work to get the puffer to eat?

It's unusual for a puffer not to eat. it's hard for me to tell what to do since I'm not observing the actual fish.

If a fish is too far pat the point of starvation it may never have the instinct again to start eating and it will slowly starve no matter what you feed it.

If you cant get it to eat live prey it might have been starved by the keepers before you got it. From the time it got caught and went through different hands/ middlemen then you got it.

 

All of our live stock is either cultured in our nursery by us or we are the wild harvester collector and we have the facilities and the resources to keep the organisms healthy and stress free before you receive it. So we cut down the days spent from ocean to your tank and the stress of low quality housing in the interim.

Perfect Delivery, Quality Product!
Written by Jamison Davis on 26th Jan 2021

I ordered the saltwater feeder shrimp and within 24 hours got my shipping confirmation and it was delivered the next day as promised. I recently purchased two wild-caught marbled catshark pups and needed an additional food source to ensure they were eating. Since I added the shrimp I have watched them decrease in count meaning the sharks are eating them. I have also been feeding frozen squid, scallops, and crab which they are also eating. Thank you RUSALTY for your fast response and great pricing. I will for sure order from you again!

400 Feeder Shrimp
Written by William P Pantos on 30th Aug 2020

I either get 200 or 400 of these every month. Probably better to get 400. If you can pick these up early in the day they will all be alive and good to go. My last shipment only had 3 casualties out of 400. They are true saltwater shrimp.

Arrived in good condition
Written by William Pantos on 8th May 2020

I get these all the time and in warm weather you should get overnight delivery if you get 400 of these because the water gets a little edgy quickly.

Feeder Shrimp
Written by Major Robert Simmons on 28th Apr 2020

Most arrived alive. Very few dead carcasses. I’ll buy more when the time is right. I have three saltwater aquariums (100, 120, and 220). The fish loved them.

Saltwater feeder shrimp
Written by Kenneth Goldsmith on 15th Feb 2020

As usual, the feeder shrimp are great. The anthias pick off the smaller ones within 48 hours. The larger ones produce eggs which feed other smaller fish as well as invertebrates. Also, as scavengers, they help clean things up

Saltwater feeder shrimp
Written by Ken Goldsmith on 17th Jan 2020

Perfect size. Should grow and breed in the tank to provide a good number of instars for the other inverts and fish. Clownfish catch the smaller ones and bring them to the ritteri anemone.

Saltwater Grass Shrimp
Written by undefined on 15th Mar 2016

Very satisfied with the product. The seven I received were very health and active and survived at least a week in the tank I put them in. I have not seen them for a few days, but they could be lost in the macro-algae in the tank. A little bit pricey at $2.00 a piece, but excellent quality.
