I have 2 ghost shrimp in each of my 3.5g kritter keepers with my betta. They eat any uneaten food, its like having a bio-vacuum.

My Uncle did say if they didnt get on in my tank they could go into his community tank with all his corries.

Might put two more in with him seeing as he seems to be behaving so far (steals their food, but wont eat his own)


Shall I keep them or shall i let him have?
