I have a halfmoon double tail in a 10g. He's fine. Not a single fin has been ripped so there isn't anything wrong with having longer finned betta's in a 10gal.

Oh perfect, and they get pretty big too so it's harder for a betta to eat them. :D I am going to go look at those shrimp now because perhaps once I get the 10 gallon set up for Nix I can have two live with her. Granted I can take the one I will put with Aquarius and get a second without too much of a qt, 2 week qt at most hopefully.

I also forgot the amano. it's easier to keep alive than a bamboo shrimps and eats just about eerything from the toughest of algae to betta food

and cheaper!

Oh, do they get fairly decent sized? Are they easy to find? Which stores would likely carry them. I think MAYBE they had them at petco last I saw, I know they had bamboo for sure.

yeah. but I think bamboos die too easily. and seeing how much you loe your adf, I want to spare you the grief. Amanos are pretty hardy shrimps. ask your petco when they get their shipment and whether they've ordered in any amanos (or they may call ot algae eating shrimp). you should try and get them on the day they arrive.

Thanks, and yeah...I get very attached to my animals >.< but I guess that is a good thing. I'm sure even my shrimp would be spoiled.
