The nettle herb, Urtica dioica, is rich in vital nutrients that shrimp utilize for growth and disease resistance. In addition, the acetylcholine, serotonin, and formic acids in nettles are thought to have anti-inflammatory properties, and are thought to increase productions in sex hormones, contributing to reproductive health.
AT Crusta Natural Nettle Sticks are free of dyes, binders, and artificial colors and preservatives. The ingredients are pretty straightforward: 100% natural nettle herb, and provides crude protein of 21%, 3% crude fat, and 16% crude fiber.
This food may be fed several times weekly by sprinkling it on the water surface, where it will slowly saturate and sink. It's recommended to feed 2 sticks for every 10 shrimp. Be sure not to overfeed, and remove the uneaten portion from your aquarium in a few hours. It's an excellent supplemental feed for all sorts of shrimp!
