Betta and Ghost shrimp

The best $1 entertainment ever! I got 3 Ghost Shrimp per Betta and as soon as I put them in the tank it was like a game of hide and go seek. All the Ghost Shrimp are still alive so far. I think...
But I know my Betta had a good time chasing them around and wondering "where did he go?". If the Ghost Shrimp end up as friends or food, it's a win-win situation. I didn't know those things could move that fast!

HAHA i love watching my Bettas "hunt" the brineshrimp (frozen thawed and dripped into the filter outlet path) they go bonkers!

the boys usually pick at them then float on their side head twisted inspecting all the cracks in the gravel seeking out the bs haha

Well one of the Betta killed 2 out of 3 of the Ghost Shrimp we put in his tank. He didn't eat them though. Kind of made me feel bad. The other 2 Betta just like chasing theirs around. I think once I get them into their bigger tank, and there are more hiding places, I'll get some more Ghost Shrimp.

Where do you get your Brine Shrimp at. Both LFS around here don't sell them. At least not live ones.
