I am going to be setting up the tank soon and now have this question. Do I add the shrimp before the Betta? I'd like to minimize the chance them being eaten, though I know it can happen.
Or if I get the Betta first, will the little guys be more likely to be eaten because they are entering his 'space'?
Honestly, I am not going to be too upset if he does end up eating them...the circle of life and all that...I just would like to not have to replace them very often :)
Edit - oh, it's a 5.5gal tank btw
