    Feeding nems ?

    I have two cleaner shrimp and on several occasions I've tried to feed my nems silversides but the cleaner shrimp keep stealing the silverside and not allowing the nem to eat. Is there a trick or anything I can do to stop the shrimp? Now I have to watch the tank while they eat and meet the shrimp away with a rod.

    I first tried feeding the cleaner shrimp first. Then that didn't work so I got rid of the cleaner shrimp.

    2-liter sofa bottle. Cut the bottom, place over men and feed through top hole.

    I just scoot the cleaner shrimp away. My nems devour their food in less than a minute, so its not a big deal. I also feed tank first, which helps

    How often do you feed your nems?
