OK well I have a tropical fresh water tank and want to know can I feed black worm or shrimp to my fish. I have a bala shark, blue goramie, 2 black barbs, and about 7 little neons. Will they eat with either and how do I feed both forms of food to them anyway? Can anyone help?

Everything in there will probably eat the worms. Only the bala will be able to fit shrimp in their mouths. Unless you mean brine shrimp. Which everyone should gobble up. I will be posting my reciepe for food in the DIY section later today if you want to check it out.

Thanks mate....yes read your recipie...very impressive! Yes Brine shrimp is what I am talking about...I have seen it being sold in the stores here in OZ but I am not sure how to feed it to the fish? Do I just pour them in to the tank or is there another method I am not aware of?

With frozen brine I general thaw them in a small cup of tank water. They submerge and draw the cup up some. This sends the food flowing near the water surface instead of sinking right away. I do this several times until the cup is empty. This way no all the food goes in @ once.

If its live shrimp you, net, rinse, feed.
