Flower Shrimp rather than Ghost Shrimp?

I found them here... Freshwater Invertebrates for Aquariums: Singapore Flower Shrimp


I like the fact they can take a higher PH & higher temp...They also grow to 3 1/2 inches.

Do you think the bettas would attack/eat them if they were that large??

Depends on your betta. See if it is friendly with ghost shrimp first. But is your betta in a 20 gallon filtered tank?

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Says that it needs at least 20 gallons. But other than that, should be okay if your betta can tolerate other shrimp.

They would probably work in a 16 gallon. But a similar shrimp is the bamboo shrimp. It acts the same, but only needs ten gallons.
