    Recently I put some ketapang leaves into my CRS tank to lower the PH level. I was surprised to find CRS eaten the leaves. I have fed them spinach before but they have never touch them at all.

    My worry is whether ketapang leave are good for them anot? Will it give negative result to my CRS?

    CRS stand for Crystal Red Shrimp, in US it's known as Bee shrimp, I think. A shrimp that come with red and white stripe.

    No problem for me to feed them ketapang leaves, I can pick up alot from here and there. Only afraid have negative impact, like colour run, weaken the gene, etc...
    Don't eat spinach is fine too, I have to pay for it and ketapang leave is free.

    been feeding ketapang since, no problem at all and more hassle free than spinach. The only issue is if too big a leaf will make the water brownish

    I don't think it will harm them in any way, shrimp are scavengers and will eat just about whatever is around them. My shrimp have been fine on a leaf, algae, and pellet diet. I've had no problems.

    ketapang leaves help shrimp to recover faster and better after molting
    and my shrimp prefer ketapang leaves more than crab cuisine and mosura crs food
