Live Fish Stock
While Amano shrimp are known to be efficient scavengers and will consume a wide range of organic matter, including fish waste, they do not primarily eat fish poop. Instead, they are more likely to feed on algae, detritus, and other decaying organic matter in the aquarium. In fact, Amano shrimp are often recommended as a natural and effective way to control algae growth in an aquarium. While they may occasionally nibble on leftover fish food and other waste, they should not be relied upon as the primary method for cleaning up after your fish. It's important to maintain good aquarium hygiene practices, such as regular water changes and vacuuming the substrate, to ensure a clean and healthy environment for your fish and other aquatic life.
