    Hey guys, i have a huge population of cherry shrimps breeding heavily in my planted tank..... can i feed them to a lionfish or seahorse? or can i culture brine, enrich them with good quality flakes and spirullina to feed seahorses and lionfish?

    ghost shrimps fry dont survive and i dont have space and time to breed them, since its a task....

    They would be a good food source. Just remember to keep their diet as varied as possible.

    The varied diet needs to be for the lion. He needs more than cherry shrimp. Your shrimp will indeed benefit from that wonderful diet and pass that onto the lion, but the shrimp still doesn't have ALL the things a lion needs, no matter what you feed it. Does that make sense?
