OMG! I, the idiot that I am, read several, and I mean several articles telling me that shrimp are great tankmates for bettas. So, I ordered a gorgeous red krili? shrimp online. I waited days and days for him to arrive. He arrived today, the cutest thing I've ever seen, I immediately named him 1, 2 and added him to the betta (Handsome Bob's) tank and withing 10 minutes, he was a goner! Bob only ate the legs off of him and I've never felt so bad in my life. He was so cute and I love Bob, dearly, infact have only had him 7 days and am quite obsessed, but I am so disheartened that he ate the shrimp. I think he's going to be a loner betta. Am also dealing with what I think are nipped fins, I originally had him with 2 tetras and am not sure how to go about healing the fins. Will they grow back? There is also a small food issue, I bought him and I bought BettaMin, he won't eat it, so I bought pellets and they were too big, so I bought him blood worms, that's all he'll eat now. I bought micro pellets, he eats them then spits them out and I also bought like a spongy brine shrimp. Same thing, spits them out. Is it ok to feed him only blood worms as on the label, it says that it's a supplement. HELP!! I adore him and don't want to lose him. He's in a 1.5 gallon tank, no filter, waters perfect and no heat, although I'll buy him one for winter. Any advice, opinions would be greatly appreciated!
