cherries do prefer veggie matter. When my phone stops being a pain I'll upload a picture of the red cloud. Half an algae wafer a day get the shrimp swarming like mad

I love Amanos but they are next to impossible to breed and they poop lots, but in neat little cylinders.

I bought another 6 ghosties to try in my sorority today! They are all alive and the bettas are totally ignoring them, so I'm positive the reason they perished last time was due to water quality issues (specifically low dissolved oxygen)...not the girls. I really wanted to buy amanos but needed to make sure the girls would leave them alone first, and I think I've confirmed that. Plus, the plants have filled in plenty and there is lots of hiding spots.

I actually went ahead and ordered some amanos online from theshrimpfarm.com - has anyone else used this site? They had free shipping on all freshwater shrimp and the amanos were cheaper than they are in the LFS (3 for 16.99 here) so I thought I'd give it a shot. Can't wait.

Is there a chance some amanos are lighter in color? Or is there a chance that they get greyer over time ?
I finally found the one that I thought Fred ate. I had them in my tank since mid-Jan. They looked greyer than the 2 new ones I got last night. the new ones are more transparent and I remember them as more transparent when I got the first 2 Amanos.

The new ones are not ghost shrims because they do not have the sharp bent in the back and the orange dot.

I've seen some that are pretty close to black and other that are light brown. just make sure the markings are identical :) As long as they are, you should be OK

2 of them molted over the weekend, not sure if it is because of the algae wafers intake since Fred was no longer around to eat their food. The newer one is having a light baby bluish grey, which is darker. The older one that molted is having a very dark grey and the spine looks fluorescent, very pretty. I think they are heartier than my beta sine they are thriving in the cycling tank.

Maybe I will take a break from beta and get either some RCS or yellow shrimp or blue velvet.....
