I will end this ghost shrimp!

I look over to Sir Crispin's tank just a few minutes ago to spy my male shrimp clamping onto my halfmoon's tail while the fish desperately tried to shake him off. I felt completely like


The only reason why I haven't taken that ghost shrimp out of the tank right now is because I'm moving and the net is at my new place. The other two shrimp (females) are much nicer, and they get to stay. But...

Tomorrow, that shrimp is gonna die. It's going to be like

I say move it to a bowl of it's own...

As much as I don't want to promote it...If it cost only 39 cents....

KEEEEEEEL IIIIIIT! Throw him into a pot of boiling water! I'm sure your HM would love a shrimp snack.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it, yet. Maybe chuck it outside to feed a bird.

Just throwing this out there, but, how big do Ghost shrimp get? o_o I expected them to be tiny...I was at Wal-mart last week and ALMOST got the last 3 they had, but, they're size scared me. They were the same size as my female betta, so...about the size of a VT female.

I find it strange that people oppose experimentation or killing of bettas but find experiments on shrimp funny? A bit hypocritical isn't it? Take it back to the petstore. You shouldn't kill an animal when there is an alternative. It might *just be a shrimp* but people say the same thing about fish... It probably just sees your betta as a threat anyway. Just my opinion though.
