lol Aden thinks he's a shrimp now

So I got Aden a bunch of new plants, and a whole bunch of ghost shrimp companions. He eats the ones-- but it seems like the big ones an dhe have reached a sort of peace now.

I've been busy as heck the past few days-- I drop food and algae wafers in for everyone and let all be. Well I pay attention today... Aden's sticking to the bottom of the tank a lot, patrolling for food with the shrimps, trying to snatch their algae wafers (AFTER I fed him, the pig!). He sticks the the floor and eyes in the gravel for more food. It's so cute! The shrimp have all become so bold too-- none o fthem are hiding anymore! They just chill with Aden. It's really cool to watch!

I just think it's funny he's trying to scavenge with them! He'll spot little bit of plant-- nom at them, and then go: D8 *spitsout* when they're not food food for him! xDDDD

Bellasmommy-- they are fun. But be sure to select shrimp that are about the size of your betta. Mine eats any of them that are too small, so only the ones who are about 3/4ths the size of his body and above are alive now.
