Most shrimp eat algea and plant based materials. ghost shrimp like more meat, and mine love betta pellets. The smaller shrimps can live in a 1 -2 gallon as long as the water is clean and well planted. ghost shrimp need 1 gallon + per shrimp. They reproduce fast so you may need more tanks if you get mixed genders. Shrimp are fun and easy to keep, and are great pets! Weekly cleaning is recommended. Watch the shrimp and see how many pellets they eat within 30 minutes. Adjust your feeding from there.
I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!
