I had 5 ghost shrimp for awhile and they all had plenty of cover, but they all met their demise eventually. Well 3 of them were snacks for bettas and 2 of them died because I put some shells in their tank that may have messed with the water chemistry (best i can figure). I don't plan on getting any more shrimps for awhile - unless I get a whole bunch of cherries in their own tank or something (I am starting to have extra tanks so that might be a possibility). But we'll see

My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!

If I wanted to feed my bettas I'd get shrimp

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.
