Calm down!!!! How about you spend the money on the fish that you already have instead?

It makes more sense to buy a nice tank and put another betta in it.

What about getting a 10g tank, dividing it, then having 5 gallons for each betta! In a 5g you can add about 4-5 shrimp! Keep it cycled and do weekly water changes, it is SO much less maintenance then smaller tanks, and then you could get more bettas for your other tanks.

4 or 5 shrimp on one side and a betta on the other sounds good to me.

Did what I said sound rude?

We DID answer in a simple way. It is that 1.5 gallon is just big enough for a betta nothing else.

I think she got answers to her question, which was that 1.5 gallons was barely enough room for a betta, much less shrimp. Also, people suggested that she use Google to do research on shrimp.I would try to find out what size tank is appropriate for however many shrimp she wants. As Kim stated, shrimp need a cycled, filtered tank to thrive and can't survive constant, 100% water changes. I would post questions about shrimp in the invertabrate subforum of the Freshwater fish and Aquariums section of FishForum. People there can tell her exactly what she needs to house and take care of shrimp properly.
