Ghost Shrimp

More like vanishing shrimp.
I added 3 ghost shrimp 10 my split 10 gallon tank. So 3 to 5 gallons. Today I only see one. Hahaha. I haven't witnessed my CT even looking at them, but he is a sneaky boy. Really both my males are very peaceful, they flared at each other once through the mesh and went on their happy little way.
Now this is not the first time I have had this happen. I do not see any shell or carcasses hanging around in the tank. Neither my boyfriend or I see more than one.

Anyone else have this problem?
Lone shrimp needs a name. Was thinking Kneivel. >:D

I dont think so, the filter in take is on the other side of the divider. But thanks for the thought. Haha.

Sounds like your Betta had a seafood dinner, lucky bugger.

I kind of figured, he does look a little bloated for only having one meal the other day. :'D Darn Durban nomming up my shrimp.
I'm not to sure though I'm going to keep an eye out for them.

Good thing they only cost 11 cents. Is it healthy to let my betta's eat them?
If so I'll keep putting them in. XD
