Okay, so I added 3 ghost shrimp with my Betta. He's left them alone and has shown no sign of aggression towards them. He's even cuddled up with the african dwarf frogs too! He does get angry at his own reflection on the back of the tank during the day but that's a different story.
So, I've had the shrimp in there for a few days and they've been eating and enjoying themselves. The tank is a 2.5 gallon with a bare bottom. I do have around 7 black stones that the frogs hide behind and 4 plants. 2 plastic grass plants, one nylon plant and one moss ball. I found the shrimps molt just floating around but no sign of the shrimp! I hope it didn't get eaten! Is it possible that the shrimp is just hiding after molting to harden up? I guess one of the other inhabitants could have eaten it but I think it's too big for any of them. The betta and frogs can barely eat the flakes and pellets let alone a .75" shrimp! I hope it's okay.
Anyone have anything similar happen?
I've heard they can hide for days sometimes but I don't think there's enough stuff in there for it to hide it. not sure where is it would be. I have a prefilter so I don't think it could have gotten sucked up.
