if the betta eats the shrimp i dont mind,as long as they are cheap shrimp,no idea if my betta is tamed,hes been alone since i got him from petco.
if i have all these plants and i have 5 cories and also snails will there be enough algea for everything to eat??
how many snails should i buy if i get just assasins and will they do naything good for my tank?
same question for nerites,how many should i put in the tank?
as for apples i dont think ammonia should be a problem if i have a soil planted tank the plants will chew up the ammonia?
whats the shrimps role in all of this,do they just eat fish poop,will they be competing with the plants for food,what role do they play other then the small ones being fun for the betta to hunt
