Ok, I picked out the two smallest shrimp they had, so I'm hoping they behave themselves. They were fifty cents apiece so it won't be the end of the world if I have to get rid of them. They're going to get pulled out of there at the first sign of agression. They'll have plenty of food, so I'm hoping it won't be an issue.

Thanks for your help! I've got my tank cycling right now with the ghost shrimp and my Betta. I went to do a water change, so I caught the shrimp and put them in a five inch cup with one inch of water in it. One still managed to escape. I got him caught and threw him back in the big tank. He walked straight up to the front of the tank and just stared at me. It was a little creepy. I don't know if Samuel even knows they're in there. He stays towards the top right of his tank where there's less current and they stay to the bottom left right where the filter intake is. I think they're trying to catch food before it gets to the filter.

I found a place that's trying to order me in a Panda Cory, so I'm all excited. It'll be 2 Julii, 2 Leopard and a Panda. They don't care what color the others are do they?

I hear they won't school as much, but will still be happy and not stressed.

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

Cories are schooling fish and do better in groups of 4-6.

Hehe, I'm planning on getting five, so hopefully I'll be set. My tank's all cycled and ready, so I'm planning on getting them Saturday. Thanks for everybody's help getting this tank set up!
