I just threw this right into the tank and shrimp immediately swarmed it. After a couple days the outer leaves were gone and left the inner IAL which last a few weeks and I'm still left with the cinnamon stick. Great long term food and biofilm sources.

everything in the tank will run/swim to this

Initially I steeped this in very hot water for about 5 minutes to help waterlog it. It was a bit stubborn to sink all the way but it did after about 2 days. I had to shake it quite a bit to get the air bubbles out. I also added the steeped water to the tank after it cooled down. Upon first adding into the tank it was probably the craziest frenzy I've seen. Shrimp swarming with excitement everywhere and piling onto the roll. After the initial frenzy, I'd still find a good amount of shrimp grazing on this even a month later. As of this writing it has been in the tank about 3 and a half months, and the shrimp have got most of the leaf wrapping eaten. They still do however graze on the cinnamon stick, and newborns like to hide inside it, which is an added bonus as I like knowing my shrimp feel safe and stress free. These rolls are a really neat concept, and I'll be getting more in the future.

I received the spring roll on a trial. I boiled as directed and placed in my CRS tank. they was not very interested which I put down to having far to much natural biofilm to eat. i then placed it into my dwarf crayfish/cherry shrimp tank and they love it. Even the Mystery snails spend time on it. About all that is left now is a few plant veins, the tie material and the actual cinnamon stick. I have babies in that tank now that are enjoying what is left.

I dropped the roll in a cup of water and put it in the microwave for a minute to boil. After cooling, I dropped the roll into my shrimp tank and it sank right away. At first, I was disappointed that my shrimp did not swarm it. A few of them jumped on it and picked on it, but a few day passed by and more shrimp are munching on the spring roll every time I look at them. It has now been a month and the roll is almost gone except the cinnamon stick. Highly recommended supplement!

I boiled for about minute cooled it then placed it into my neocaridina tank. They swarmed it immediately and are very active around it. It's a very cool addition to my tank! I would definitely recommend for any shrimper looking for something new!

Dropped it in the tank and while it was floating, the shrimp kept trying to munch on it. Took a day or so to settle after which they stop by it off and on. In all, it's a good addition to the tank and nice spot for baby shrimp to hide.

I received my cinnamon spring roll yesterday. The instructions were to boil it for about 30 seconds, so I brought my water to a boil and dropped it in. I ended up boiling it for around 2 minutes and then let it sit in the water for a little while longer after turning off the boil since it wasn't sinking. Took it out, let it cool (it smells lovely btw) and then put it into my shrimp tank with some tongs. It still wouldn't sink on it's own so I propped it under a plant and it ended up staying standing straight for a while.
I watched for a reaction from my shrimp and there was no immediate reaction like other people have reported. I'm not sure if it's because I have leaves and cholla wood in my tank along with lots of moss, but my shrimp didn't run to the spring roll. After about 5-10 minutes, a few shrimp came to inspect in and nibbled on it a bit, then continued on their way to pick at other things instead. A few hours later there were no shrimp on the stick at all.
I think in my case, my shrimp will like it more as it starts to decay, since they always have something breaking down to nibble on. I don't feed them often (maybe once every couple of weeks) so they weren't full on food when I introduced the spring roll into the tank.
It looks like it has good construction and the leaves are tied on with what looks like fishing line. I think this would be a great over time feeder for shrimps to graze on as the leaves and cinnamon get softer.
