They like to eat decaying plant matter. Have a look at it's droppings. They
should be almost cube like, and there should be a LOT of them. The're easily
identifiable and can almost not be confused with fish droppings. This is a 
better way of knowing if your shrimp gets enough to eat. Otherwise let some 
old leaves in the tank on the bottom.
