Like most aquarium shrimp, Pinocchio shrimp aren’t picky eaters at all. They are omnivores that naturally eat anything they can find. In the aquarium they’ll enjoy picking at algae and biofilm, although you should supplement their diet with shrimp foods as well as extras like frozen foods or blanched veggies.
