They may become a snack to your betta but the shrimp themselves will not hurt your fish. Someone else might want to chime in on the stocking of this size tank though, it seems a bit crowded to me. I am also only halfway through my first cup of coffee so it could also just be me not making conversions from liters to gallons correctly.

Never explain - your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.

Thanks for that- I have just received my UV filter to combat the green water , at the mo I only have 1 female betta, 1 neon and 1 danio, so I am trying to claim back the water and then add some more fish and 1 amano shrimp.

I am thinking of buying some more neaons, but maybe 5 or 6 to go with existing one and not 10 and amano shrimp??

if it is really red and white across the body I'd say a crystal red. Amano shrimp are quite boring in colouring, they are brownish/see-through with dark spots in rows along the side of the body.

If this is what you have, you have a CRS, or crystal red shrimp. More expensive and more fragile than cherries.

If this is what you have, you have an amano shrimp.

IF this is what you have, you have tiger shrimp. Please not there are different colours of tiger shrimp out there.
