Ahaha, sorry for late posting, wasn't feeling great yesterday.
Oh goodness you, there's no stopping now is there! Haha yes, that girl is beautiful!
Shrimp depends on the girls or Betta in general. If you can get the biggest Cherry shrimp they have, I'm sure they will be fine, they are also faster which is good. If you get some good tiny hiding spots it will also help the girls from eating them. I'm a bit wary myself when it comes to housing both Cherry and Ghost together though.
Ghost shrimp have claws unlike most other shrimp and can be a bit territorial, however I've seen people who house both and have never had problems. I think if you get the biggest ones you'll be fine. I don't know if you know, but Ghost shrimp are the scavengers and eat leftover food (fresh food, they don't eat rotting stuff though) and occassionally nibble on algae. Cherry shrimp are your algae eaters, both Cherry and Amanos act like an assembly line where the Amano's break down the bigger stuff and then the Cherries eat the small stuff so I know those are both very successful shrimp and many people use them.
Also Cherry shrimp will breed as well too, so I'm sure you could start off with like 5 and end up with 10 more at the end of summer lol, actually I really don't know how much or how often they breed, I was just speculating XD
And the girls should be fine for the week, as I had said before I had a fish who didn't eat for a month when I got him, I would offer food but he would never eat it. If you can and do find someone, just once during the week would be fine. I wouldn't worry too much, especially if you've got live plants in there because they'll pick at the bugs on the plants and whatever they find in the substrate :)
It would also be less stressful for them to stay in the tank instead of going back and forth, you know? But that's just my opinion :)
Also no I've never moved a tank larger than 3 gallons. I was moving my room around and had to take my 3 gallon off the dresser to move it so I unplugged (mind you it's acrylic) and picked up, fish and all and just set it gently on the floor until I could move it back up there again. I've moved my 10 gallon but it was empty at the time so that doesn't count.
Hmm, I think I got everything lol
