+1, they are just minding their own business but don't provoke them...bettas are smart, they got it figured out pretty fast.

not so with the RCS, they are helpless sometimes.

Well, I'm glad I got shrimp that stick up for themselves. Poor D'Artagnan, no one is afraid of him in that tank. He gets no respect.

I've even found two shrimp molts in the tank, with all the Jacques out in the open. I had thought they were supposed to hide for a day or two afterward because they are vulnerable. These guys are like, Bah! We can take the betta, soft skin or no. One of the molts was even in the very front of the tank!

I would have gotten amano shrimp if they were as red as cherries (sakura's). It's cute that they're not afraid !! What a standoff!
