japanese algae eater shrimp?

they look very similar to the ghost shrimp but it is almost double the size so im wondering if it is okay to get like 1 for my 2.5 gallon tank. Plus if it is okay to have just moss ball for food......i got some ghost shrimp but it is epically hard to find them when i do my water change. Plus i always accidentally crush them.......

You will need at least a five gallon for the larger japanese shrimp. If you want to keep a betta with it, I recomend a fairly large tank of about six to ten gallons or larger.

Shrimp need live plants. Moss balls are excellent. However, they will still need proper nutrion. Petstores sell commercial shrimp foods that work great.
