Ive been researching everything for the tank and the Betta, and found on some site a clear shrimp tunnel. The tunnel allows the shrimp to feel as if they are hidden/safe (radar tells them this), yet are still in view. I dont know the size of the tunnels, nor the shrimp size, but perhaps this would work for a while.

Poor shrimp, lol. What a shock to get sharked by your tank mate!

Oh, perhaps having a school would help. Some people do report it works out, but i think you would need a bigger tank.

Even in a 26 gallon my shrimp were hunted down and eaten one by one. Because of them he now cruises his gravel looking for food and will actually pick up his sunken pellets if I missed one. I bought 6, 4 were eaten within 24 hours the other two were alive by luck and their own intelligence but they only last maybe 4 extra days before they were inevitably caught.

2 5.5 Gallons - 1 Male VT black and blue - Comet
1 Male CT white and red - Rocket

Plants - Water Wisteria, Hornwort.
