    Default Hokkaido squash chips

    I have been feeding orange Hokkaido squash chips (this squash is also known commonly as Red Kuri or Japanese squash) to my Ramshorn snails and Red Cherry shrimps for about two years. The snails have an “upgraded ” look… their shells are in the best condition ever and they look like small pink and blue pearls in the aquarium. Here is a blue ramshorn feeding...

    For the shrimps, I have come to believe that the Hokkaido squash chips have a positive effect on their coloration. The red color is continuous and thick, no blank spots or poor color on adult females! I think that the pigments from this deep orange squash along with the other nutrients it has to provide as feed, are responsible for such magnificent shrimp colors.

    I would very much like to know if you also feed Hokkaido chips to your invertebrates (if you do please state which shrimp/snail species) and your observations
