FEMALE bettas and shrimp?
Yes, I'm specifically asking about female bettas and shrimp. I had some ghost shrimp in with my male betta for over a week and he was fine until they started molting then he began picking them off one by one, killing and eating most. I got 3 females tossed on me last week (seriously, mom got bad advice at Walmart and put 3 girls in a one gallon together....it wasn't pretty, now I have them). I have one female in with my last two remaining ghost shrimp. They've been together for only a few days and she seems fine with them...though neither have molted since being in with her so I don't know if that will change or not. Well, I have two other females and I'd really like to get just a few shrimp for their tanks. I was thinking of cherry shrimp this time instead of ghosts. Are female bettas any better with shrimp as a general rule or is it just REALLY dependent on the individual fish? Thanks in advance for any help and advice.
