I find that rotting stuff in my tank is usually confined to the water and I cant smell it. Trust me Ive had some nasty stuff in my tanks.

That's how I've done all the saltwater tanks I've setup for people. Just toss a piece of table shrimp in the tank. Skimmer is usually where the smell ends up. I just had another one try to carpet surf earlier today. So I remade a cover that fit tighter around the filter.

Seems to be Freyja is chasing them up out of the water.

I didn't know shrimp would jump out! I know sometimes snails will climb out but I didn't know shrimp will.

No jumping shrimp here, though they do climb up and over the tank divider so as to take the time to visit with both my betta.

I really don't get why your shrimp jump, because they usually only do it when they are nervous, and there has to be a CAUSE for that. Like abusive fish? Just a thought.

I had a shrimp with my betta in a one gallon.. he nipped at the shrimp a bit at first, n he'd hide in the minipineapple alot, but then they were fine, they'd even sit at the bottom of the bowl next to eachother alot just chillin the shrimp would run his antenae over him alot it was weird... theeeen my shrimp died three days later because I didn't know they needed filtration or airation then the betta ate him after he died :/


Conclusion: It's fine if there is air coming in or filter, they won't eat eachother, at least mine didn't and it's always nice to have a hiding personal space to go to for everybody in there.
