They seem to love the meal you made for them. The tiny drop of seachem prime is funny like you're adding the final touch to your master dish lol


dejaysus

The hint of sulfur really brings out the subtle flavours 😚👌

Gordon Ramsay would be proud

IT’S RAW!


MamaRobin1916

🤣 I love Gordon though. It was raw. I read your reply in his tone/voice.


This_Championship605

Love it. Those pricks don’t know what they’ve got!


dejaysus

Oh, to have a sad giant lovingly prepare balanced meals for me. No job, no thoughts, just shrimp vibes


ghetto_engine

r/aeropress has some questions about your technique.


archeusdevine

Imo, that was the most self relating part.


dejaysus

My partner uses his forehead. The weight of your head and the heavy thoughts therein makes a perfect brew.


suziehomewrecker

I feel this mental decline as well, and I approve.


boscobrownboots

same


dejaysus

My therapists do not approve


suziehomewrecker

But do they keep shrimp?


justanotherportocall

My fish like them too. Might get a skrimps


dejaysus

Join the crustacean crew 🦐🦐🦐 just make sure your fish aren't shrimp eaters, if you're keeping them together. Poor buddies are pretty low on the aquatic food chain. They can't help being delicious. 😔


justanotherportocall

I have a couple brichardia, mild temper and small. They are african chiclids though. I have a couple bolivian rams but they are chill. Im trying to build a comunity tNk. Swords molliez guppies and such.


Facegrinder

From experience rams will destroy a cherry shrimp population, temperament doesn't matter, mollies and guppies go nicely though :)


bongwaterbeepis

Perfect angels. Protect them with your life


rOnce_Gaming

Mine never eats fresh veggies lol only sinking pellets. I mean less work for me but i find it weird


dejaysus

Kids these days, not eating their vegetables. 😔


garakplain

You may need to prime it first.


rOnce_Gaming

Done every step I can find. Boiling 10 mins 20 mins 3o mins. Cooling off with cold water, just leaving it out in the air. And also tried tons of veggies I can find on Google lol. They just don't take it but they go crazy for the pellets. My other veggie eating fish don't eat the veggies as well. If u look at my posts, even my hill stream loach goes crazy for pellets and does not touch veggies lol


Terminal-Psychosis

Blanching the veggies helps a lot.

boscobrownboots

they are nifty gloves!


dejaysus

Search for aquarium/pond gloves, your local home & garden store should have em if not your LFS! I think these were an Amazon purchase but I'm trying not to recommend ol Bezos these days


Varied_Fighter

Totally unrelated but I recently got an aeropress and I smiled when you do the same thing I've wanted to do and putting my cheek down on the press and push the coffee out that way haha. Now I have to, wish I still had my shrimp babies too so seeing yours kept my smile going.


dejaysus

The forehead is also a good option, it's therapeutic. The weight of my head has to be good for something!


LordElfa

Are you holding your camera or do you only have 1 hand?


dejaysus

Just some ill-advised handheld cinematography there


dorabsnot

The end of your video made me laugh from pure relating to you. Mirroring you inadvertently from Wisconsin tonight. The skrimps distract from some of the debilitating depression.


dejaysus

I'm a 24/7 crazy person but this time of year is always a particular drag. We'll scrabble into brighter days, like silly little shrimp 🦐


dorabsnot

Lol’d at “24-7 crazy person”, because same, and I ditto your reply. Here’s to the scrabble 💪


lostview

This made my day. I will try feeding my shrimpies cucumber now 😊


Naniey_Crystal

I made my own fish food. The shrimps didn't like it much. I even put calcium in it for them. Thank god my snails and fishes likes it. The shrimpies like biofilm more😂 Maybe because I didn't put cucumber in it. My cucumber plant all died. Need to plant new ones


dejaysus

Ungrateful children! I can't wait to plant veggies for my shrimp to eat, in the Spring. I'm always worried about pesticides when I give them veg from the store.


Naniey_Crystal

Well, after continuous feeding, some of them finally came out to eat. I count that that as success 😆


dejaysus

Haha the ungrateful children finally caved! I do think biofilm and algae are just their favourite generally, they go crazy when I put an algae pellet in.


MamaRobin1916

Sending virtual hugs and positive vibes. We just were feeling it really badly ourselves over here, finally getting back into some partial light. My tanks center me 💓


dejaysus

It's a shitty time of year for everyone. Love watching these lil red jesters and wishing I was them. Not a single thought behind those little worm-on-a-string eyes.


Aronlalaron

I don't know why, but I got excited about the fact that you have the same coffee bean grinder as me!


dejaysus

My partner brought it home, I would have been fine with a little crank grinder but he insists it doesn't get the grind fine enough. I'm still not used to the noise of it, gives me café job flashbacks haha


eustoma01

Upvoted for the Aeropress lol


jolly_ego

I love watching my shrimpies eat cucumber :)


CeruleanRabbit

I love the shrimpies. The bad French accent of the singer is killing me, tho.


dejaysus

skwaley du blabga, toe vie consommé 🎶


CeruleanRabbit

Lol!


singlecoloredpanda

Is the extra long glove worth it, I thought about it but then the glove will be dropping everywhere


dejaysus

I have sensitive skin and don't want to get any products in the tank, so yeah it is for me! I keep a lil towel there so I just dry the glove off afterwards, and hang it on the door for a while.

dejaysus

Eventually they all crawled underneath it to get the good stuff on the underside, and started moving it around like they're cartoon characters trying to stay incognito. And then they flipped it out of the dish, as is tradition.


spiffynid

How long do you leave it in the tank? I started a 'nap n kale' regimen in my husband's tank and they don't seem to notice the goodies.


dejaysus

3-4 hours! I don't feed them every day and I always leave food in the same spot so they see and sniff it out straight away. Your lil guys might just have better things to pick at!


Lazerfintenna

Appreciate the slo-mo cuke pinch scene 😂


dejaysus

I love their lil pinchers 🥺

This brought me joy. Thanks!
