OK, no bamboo shrimp. That makes sense to me. I can't imagine there's enough "stuff" floating around with only a betta and two snails (two now because one rode in on some plants lol).

I think the ghost shrimp are cool, being able to see through their little bodies, but I just discovered Rili shrimp. Best of both worlds!! I'm totally hooked now. lol Someone who breeds shrimp told me my tank could support dozens (eh!?), but I don't plan on doing that on purpose. lol However I am glad to know that if they breed my tank shouldn't overstock.

I've got a piece of gorgeous driftwood in my tank now and there are SO many places to scurry and hide in it. Dr. Seuss keeps trying to go through them himself, but sticks his nose partly in and decides against it, since his head won't fit. lol So I'm feeling really optimistic about trying again. :D I think I'm gonna try Rili shrimp, since they are, in essence, cherry shrimp with transparent stripes. Sooooo pretty!! I'm well on my way to becoming as big a shrimp fan as a betta fan. LOL!!
