I got cherry shrimp on monday and they are really fun. You might want to get about 4 so that they will breed.
How do I take care of them?? They're easy to take care of, stick to the normal water change schedule.
What do they eat? Any fish food and live plants. Will also eat algae wafers.
Do they do well with bettas? From what I've heard, they can survive if there are a ton of hidey holes. Ghost shrimp would be a better choice to go with bettas, I'm keeping the RCS in their own tank.
Do they mind the heat? (bettas heater) tolerate wide range of temp, 60-90 F.
Do they eat plants? Yes, but not enough to hurt the plants as far as I can tell.
Do I need more hidey places (3 in the 5g and 2 big ones in the 10g) You'll need tons of hidey holes with bettas, java moss is a very good plant for them to hide in.
Bettas: Kassandra & Aeneas
R.I.P. Indigo, Ramses, Perseus, Alpha, Omega, Toby, Frozone, & Ares
