ghost shrimps have a faster metabolism making them more susceptible to bad water parameters and presence of nitrates.
you can feed the shrimps food by dropping it somewhere the betta wont see... ghost shrimps have an excellent sense of smell and will pinpoint the food from afar.

We just have the betas, their plants and their home shelter. With two shrimp per tank. We bought the shrimp tonight so lets see if they survive the battle! We named them all the kids names with Bait attached to them! I.e SmurfBait lol

Funny names I like them. Just remember that Betta has 2 TTs.

Our tanks are currently just 2.5 gallons, but I'm hoping for a bunch of five gallon tanks for Christmas from Santa!

I will be getting more shrimp for my 10 gallon..probably will start with five and see how that goes. This tank will have a full grown male betta.....soooo they may become a snack...he tries to eat everything...

In my other tank with the female...two shrimps are "missing" I haven't seen them in a while...only the big one.
