They look bronze to me. Cute :D
I think they appreciate a piece of cucumber once a week.

How do I go about feeding them Cucumber? Do I just drop it in and wait for it to be eaten, or do I take it out after a while (of course I know it'll be just a slice, which I wouldn't mind sharing the rest of the full cucumber with myself).

Can the shrimp also have some cucumber?

I should probably ask about baby ghost shrimp, too. Is there any chance that any from a batch would survive in the tank (after I unplug the filter, of course)? I'm only wondering because there's one pregnant ghost shrimp, with it's belly moving a lot.

Don't turn off the filter. Just take the intake tube and put pantyhose around it, low flow if it's adjustable :)
I'd take out the cucumber within a few hours if they don't eat it all. Shrimp will probably enjoy it too, a betta may bite it but will probably not eat it.

Are there other things I could put in place of pantyhose? I don't have any. Oh, and my filter is a low flow, as far as I know.

do you have an aquarium sponge? you can cut a hole in the center and slide onto the filter snuggly. and put cucumber in, take out if not eaten after I'd say a few hours.

I just had to keep trying to get a good picture of Finneon. I got two more pictures, one which I'm proud of because it shows most of his color (the only camera I have is my phone's, which isn't too great).

I would up the number of Bronze Cories, just to around 6 of them.

Assuming you have 6 Bronze Cories, 6 Ghost Shrimps, and one Betta, you're a little bit over-stocking. You could try around 4 Cories.

Just to make them feel more comfortable, the larger the number the more they feel safe.

Also, stunning Betta. :)

Thank you. When I saw it at the pet store I just felt like I had to bring it home, especially after a little kid showed interest in it (I was worried he may not have taken care of it too well). After a while it just became more colorful. It actually has black dots all over its tail, which is impossible to see in the pictures.
