I think asking for fish or fish related stuff for your birthday is a good idea. :)

I put some ghost shrimp in with my little female- and she ATE them! Actually she devoured 2 in rapid succession on the second day- there's just one left- is that normal?

Depends on the Betta, mine lives happily with 6 ghost shrimp, others will kill them on site.

Yeah I've had snakes so I don't mind the idea of live food but I don't want her to get the bloat- but she seemed to really enjoy hunting them down so I think I'll get more but keep them in the tiny pet carrier so she only has one or two in there with her at a time. I had hoped to eventually add her to a community tank when I eventually move- but my Lulu is turning out to be quite the little predator so I'll just let her have the 3 gallon to herself.

Danggit- my kid dropped my little carrier and now it's got a big crack in it- I'll have to figure out another way to keep the feeder shrimp. There's always something to get messed up isn't there? blegh
