    feeding cooked shrimo negates the purpose of feeding it has no nutrients at all and is just turned in to waste ie: phosphates and nitrates. you really shouldn't have to feed your anemone if you have a clown fish ad it will bring food to it. try feeding fresh raw seafood, clams, shrimp, scallops, oysters. i take all of these and put them together in a processer and freeze, then feed my fish about a 1/4 teaspoon every 3-4 days @ the most otherwise they work for there food, finding in the tank among the reef. try this and you should see great results.

    The only thing I have noticed with feeding shrimp is more algae and dirty water. So, I stick to quality flake and veggies. Unless you have corals that require target feeding, I think there is alot of extra "crap" in those frozen mysis cubes that you don't count on adding to your tank. I think most people way overfeed as well. Just my opinion.

    Which would explain why Lucy was not very old when she died!!!! Yeah. I can see the arguement. Back in the stone ages we certainly didn't live very long. Women wouldn't even make it to menopause, which makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint. And the same thing with men. So I will continue to use my BBQ routinely (even in the winter). Because, simply, BBQing is a celebration of life. And I loooove meat. Mmmmmmm. My cholesterol and triglycerides are rising just thinkin' about it.

    So you're saying that men didn't live to menopause either? :)
