I have a dwarf frog. They're really cute, but feeding is a bit of a pain; I have to use tweezers to feed her, or else my betta will eat until he is bloated and leave nothing for the dwarf frog. She even puts up with his bullying. I had ghost shrimp too (before the frog), for awhile.... until he ate them.

I've got a ten gallon that is just about ready for fish. I'm thinking that I'm going to get another betta, like 3 cory cats, and 4 platys, or mollies. I can't wait to go to the petstore!

My one and only...

@seriousbrad WHOA. That's a lot. What size tank do you have? Don't glass cats and otos like to shoal?

I just picked up three glass shrimp. One didn't make it home before the other two canniblized him. The other two are happily foraging in my tank. The big one is just about as big as Tango. I named her Big Bertha! Tango went up to her, checked her out and then left her alone. The other is smaller. His name is Burt. Don't know if he'll make it. I have so many plants and stuff, I'm just hoping they stay hidden and live. They are SO neat to watch.

Well, Tango just tried to mess with Big Bertha and she stood up and boxed him. :O. Everyone is fine.

Ha, that sounds like the way my betta was when I first got my ghost shrimp (except I sincerely hope that your luck with shrimp is better than mine was). One was his size, the other was smaller. The smaller one was always going after my poor betta's tail, so I took it out with a small cup. I hoped to give it to someone else who had a fish with less tempting fins. But I forgot that shrimp can jump, and mine did :(. I felt pretty bad about it. The remaining shrimp (almost betta sized) was fine for almost a month... then my betta flipped and ate it. Sorry for the long story; it just seemed applicable. So, best of luck to the shrimp keepers!
