The Best Aquarium Shrimp Food
This shrimp food is designed for all aquarium shrimp including the adults and the young.
It's also suitable for all species of shrimp and crayfish including the very common Cherry Shrimp and Crystal Red Shrimp.
As the name suggests this shrimp foods main ingredient is Nettle which is absolutely packet with vitamins and minerals which are essential for health shrimp to grow.
A) Nettles (Stinging Nettle Urtica dioica) alone are one of the most nutrient dense and vitamin rich plants in Europe thus making it a super food, It also contains formic acid which helps to prevent bacterial infections in the shrimp. When you are stung by nettles this is where the sting feeling comes from.
B) Pollen is loaded with minerals and vitamins with an added benefit that it actual lasts a very long time unlike other sources of nutrients that tend to decay over time. Pollen is also the perfect size because of the micro grains its made up of for baby shrimp to eat.
C) Beta-Glucans which is a immune system mobilizer, what this means in laymen terms is that Beta- Glucans super charge your Immune system to make it work more efficiently, for the shrimp this means less energy spent on fighting disease and more time being healthy and producing babies.
C) Montmorillonite clay is rich in mineral content which help with body function of the Shrimp with an added benefit, the Montmorillonite has a high cation exchange rate meaning its able to absorb impurities like toxins and heavy metals from the water.
D) Now with added Citric Acid which helps to preserve the food but also helps fight bacterial infections from the inside. see more here Stopping bacterial infections in Shrimp. Remember the old saying " An apple a day keeps the Doctor away " well it turns out there is truth in it.
E) Organic Chlorella Algae , Grown in freshwater and nourished by the sun our cracked wall organic Chlorella powder originates in the south China Sea, Harvested and hand washed and then put through a fast drying process to capture maximum nutritional content ,Contains a wide range spectrum of mineral and vitamins including Vitamin B1,B2,B3,Folate Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc
70% of a shrimps natural diet will include algae so I think its important to include it it all shrimp food.
Added Spinach, Krill and lactobacillus

Thank you Mark.

Marks Shrimp Tanks
As an shrimp keeper I have a wealth of knowledge dating back almost 30 years and I have been breeding and keeping freshwater aquarium shrimp such as Red Cherry Shrimp, Crystal Red Shrimp, Taiwan Bee Shrimp for about 10 years.
Early in 2016 I decided to start my own YouTube channel called Marks Shrimp Tanks which you can find here https://goo.gl/JMPwor
I started my own channel to help others learn how to keep freshwater aquarium shrimp and I hope I can spread my passion for this wonderful hobby.
Shrimp can also be picked up this way if you wish.
