You know lilnaugrim, I might just start PMing you when I have a question. You always seem to have the answers I need! lol
This will be primarily a shrimp tank & I want plenty of places for them to hide & play. I have been warned that the frogs might snack on a few of them, but most of them should be fast enough to get away. I guess about the same situation as putting shrimp with bettas.
You did help me out though. I know I don't have a tank good enough to get any right now. I think I will put this down on the list for after I get my 29 gallon sorority set up. That will empty two 10 gallon tanks and I can start setting one of those up for the shrimp.
Do you think a plant grow out tank would be a good place for the shrimp? I can still tackle two projects with 1 tank that way. Maybe I will just get my little boy a 5 gallon tank for his bday & some frogs. They are mostly for him anyway. I think a 4 year old would love them. I really would still like to put the frogs in the shrimp tank, but if they are going to eat to many of them I probably won't.
Going to look into the red cardinals too. I just want something different from the red cherry shrimp. There are some others I've seen that I really liked, but not for the price. Do you know, can I have different types of shrimp in the same tank? Not like ghost shrimp, I know they can be more aggressive. The smaller type like the red cherry, bee, & cardinal shrimps?
Dream Bettas: Pure white HM or VT (for my daughter), new 'spikey' fish (CT for my son), blue & orange betta male (for my fiance), and more live plants (for my bettas )
