Shrimp and bioload


Recommended Posts


I been curios about this myself.

I do not know the answer, but ill tell you my opinion . . .


Alot of the crustaceans and snails and other "creatures" that we all like so much have very primitive life functions compared to a fish.

As such, they do not carry out everyday life functions-such as breathing, digesting, etc- in the same manner as the higher life forms.


An example of this would be a tide pool, they are usually filled with crabs and snails and shrimps and other creatures that survive in the limited levels/extreme conditions contained in the tidepools and often for extended periods of time, whereas most fish would quickly die.


So my guess would be "no".

Again, I cant say for certain and I could be completely wrong, but it makes logical sense, dont it?

Yes because some shrimp can molt once a week.


I dont think that exo would add to bioload.

Its made of chiton, like your fingernails.

Things can eat it, but it dont really decompose.

So you think my tiger would count as a fish in terms of bioload? I'm sure he eats as much as the goby, so I guess yes.

I still say no...

But, Im also tired of everybody arguing anything I say . . .
