i recently got 3 ghost shrimp for my betta tank. Its a 10g but the Arthur seems to not even care about the shrimp. In the 5 days i've had them they have already begun cleaning all the alge around the tank. Shrimp kick ass and look super freaky

AWESOME! well Ima have to think on it a bit, like I said it was just a whim, but I appreciate all the info and if I decide on a snail I may just have to hit u up for one if your project goes well. may wait till I have a bigger tank with a lid so everyone is safe and sound. Sushi is perfectly fine w/o one (5mo and not even a hint of a jump---knock on wood) but i'd hate to have a run-away snail on my hands, Id feel bad if it died ya know

yeah I was thinking cherry would be cooler than the ghost, especially since my decor is all red and green right now....maybe I will start a tank JUST for the shrimp and snails, is that doable?

Absolutely, lots of people have shrimp only tanks and probably snails only tanks. Google "shrimp tanks".

Rcs, are just the right size for a betta to snack on! The baby shrimp are tiny replicas of the adults really cute. Ghosts are bigger and don't attract the bettas attention seemly manage to evade the muchie hour. Beware of ghost shrimp impersonators, I got a mutant shrimp in a batch of ghosts and it grabbed on to the bettas tail and was going for a smackdown.

I only do 50% changes right now and just leave the shrimp in there. The challenge is not sucking them uo in the gravel vacuum as they are hard to see sometimes

yeah almost seems like more trouble than its worth...guess he will just have to stay alone till I can get a bigger tank and figure out what kind of fish buddy would be best for him. im sure hes fine like he is, Im just worrying that hes lonely when in reality hes probably like "hey woman, did I say I wanted a roomie" hahahah
