Idon't think any of my LPS have dwarf cories although they do have the little albino ones.. If I choose to get cories how many should I put on one 5 gallon side? If I get shrimp let me ask.. What do you all feed your shrimpies?

Well I thought I should feed them because I feed my bettas pellets and since there is no leftover food, the lil shrimpies might get hungry. I'm scared of shrimp though because I have heard of microbrachium stories. It gives me the shivers..

ghost shrimps have orange markings. 2 dots on the tail and one band on each whisker you can look out for those

I have some oto catfish in my divided ten gallon. The boys occasionally get interested in them, but haven't so much as nipped, just swam around them.

Hopefully this image will help you ID
the orange is usually not as bright in the LFS, probably due to poor conditions, but like fish, the shrimps will color up and show white patterning under good care.

A divided 10 gallon is too small for a school of Corydoras, even dwarf Corys. They also should have sand due to the sensitive nature of their barbels.
