Amano Shrimp with Betta


My adoptee is arriving today from cjconcepcion!

Yay a HMPK!

I have 2 Amano shrimp coming next week.

If I provide lots of hiding places do you think the shrimp will survive?

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Pond and ramshorn snails (so many!) 2.5 g

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

Amano shrimp do grow much larger than regular cherries or ghosts, so they do stand a better chance with a betta.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Nice! I'm sure that the betta won't bother these shrimps because they are bigger than cherries and ghost shrimps.

Plenty of cover and make sure you check them everyday to see if they have any issues. Always have an extra temporarily tank if your betta decides to get agressive with these shrimps.

Good luck!

Post a pic of your betta! You are so lucky! I wanted HMPK too! I just gotta look for it in the pet store lol.
