To stop the cichlid’s hunger strike, my mother suggested that we give her shrimp. It worked.
Fine-tasting mites became a joke in my house – I was 12 or 13 at the time. The impact of the fish diet on the household budget was, however, negligible: he ate a few pieces a day of small shrimp, the cheapest kind.
Shrimp as food for aquarium fish is, by the way, very common. There’s even a type that you create on a separate six pack, to offer alive to pet guppys and betas.
It is brine shrimp, a genus endemic to continental salt lakes. They are tiny crustaceans, so small that an individual cannot be examined with the naked eye. As a group, they look like a cloud of water mosquitoes.
In the last century, brine shrimp eggs were sold under the name “marine kikos”, as if they would spawn tiny creatures with superior intelligence. A masterpiece of the embossing. But let’s get back to the ration.

Shrimp is a carrion animal, coprophagous, it looks like a cockroach that spends its life swimming standing up. I don’t know why so much fetish. Because the meat is delicious perhaps?
Nothing irritates a pomeranian’s tutor more than a poor man eating well and with gusto. Hence, I think it was an insult that the meal served in the MTST occupation included shrimp.
A positive effect of the episode is the reaction against the absurd. A crowd collected donations to promote a shrimp (yes, I invented the word) in an occupation of Jardim Iguatemi, in the deep eastern zone. It will be this Sunday (21).
