uh... it has to be realllllllllyyyy well planted XD
you can try one.... but it might die really quickly. Also if the betta chases it, it doesnt have much space to run and hide.

btw.....how does the fish in your avatar swim? :O

The fish in my avatar isn't mine, he was an aquabid fish.

Well.. it has bamboo, lol. I guess I won't get one, I'd hate for it to die right away.

Awww, I feel sad for fishies like that D: those pectorals must be so much burden ;_; and they can't bite it shorter >.>

By bamboo, just a friendly reminder because some people are the victims of non aquatic plant being marketed as aquatic....

Ghost shrimps are really one of the more fragile species so if the tank parameters are off even by a tiny bit, they wont like it very much at all :O

Random question... could RCS and ghosties get along? I have a 5.5 with 2 ghosties and an HMPK that completely ignores them. I like the look of RCS, but I'm not sure if I should/could add more shrimps... the tank is an NPT with actively growing plants if that helps at all :)

but do try one first, ghost shrimps are almost invisible, but cherry shrimps can be anything from orange to opaque red... which is quite eye catching.

Will do, although Shosta has pretty much looked a shrimp in the eye and left it alone xD

Any tips on how/what to feed ghost shrimp without feeding the betta?? My HMDT has learned rather quickly that he can steal food from the shrimp (mainly pellets because those are easy to see) and he's getting fat. I'm worried about swimbladder issues because he is a double tail. I feed my bettas mainly live daphnia with the occasional frozen brine shrimp and pellets, and am concerned my shrimp aren't getting enough food because my betta is such a pig!! I even put some small pieces of lettuce in my tank today and guess who ate most of them? Any suggestions??
