So, my Betta, Ziggy, is now happily in a heated, filtered 5 gal, with 3 live plants and some driftwood. Since I have live plants now, I really wanted to get a tank cleaner, but I had heard that snails produce a lost of waste. I thought ghost shrimp are cheap and adorable, and I know they are pretty clean creatures, so I bought some. Ziggy did not get along well with them, he hunted them to tank-extinction (even when I bought larger ones I thought he would leave alone).
Are there any other breeds of shrimp that get bigger (but not too big)? I went to the pet store and saw some really interesting varieties of shrimp, but they get up to 4" so.... No way.
Any creatures that are recommended that he may get along with better?
